SLAA Announces the 2019 Rising Star Winners

SLAA News ,

The St. Louis Apartment Association hosted their premier event of the year, the Rising Star Awards Banquet on Friday evening, April 26, 2019, at Sheraton Westport’s Lakeside Chalet. 

Record breaking attendance (700 guests) were there to honor 147 outstanding nominees,
and this year’s Rising Star winners.  In addition, Nan Westbrook with Somerset Apartment Management was honored for serving on the SLAA Board of Directors for the past nine-years. 

This year’s VIP (Volunteers are Important People) winners were Mandi Randell with The Lipton Group and Kevin Laune with Watchtower Security for their commitment to the Community Awareness committee; and Jamie Bryan with Monarch Investment for her dedication, support, enthusiasm, and passion for the industry and our association.  We appreciate our volunteer board and VIPs very much!

It was a spectacular event!  Congratulations to everyone!  We hope you enjoyed the event!
