The Town of Trophy Club hosted a special event for its most tenured employees who have dedicated themselves to the Town and its residents on Monday, November 12, 2018. It’s a special event meant to honor and show the gratitude the leadership team has for their commitment to excellence and to the town.
“This group represents the finest attributes of our many administrative and public safety team members; long-term, dedicated, and exceptionally qualified public servants who work tirelessly on behalf of our residents and Council,” stated Town Manager Tom Class “I am exceeding proud of all they do and honored to stand beside them in the day to day service of our community.”
Each of these dedicated employees represents the core values of the organization and thanking them for their service to meet these core values in their everyday work is important. In order to strategically meet the priorities and goals set in place by the Mayor and Town Council members, having a strong employee structure in place is imperative. “Talent is never enough. With few exceptions, the best players are the hardest workers” – Magic Johnson
