We are proud to announce that Shawna Falco has been selected by the Houston team as Employee of the Month for September!

Shawna Falco

Shawna started working for Margie Adams in June 2000 (11 months after Marquis) and worked for her for 15 years until becoming part of Lone Star. In a previous career, Shawna worked at a dentist's office and even taught dental hygienists classes.

Shawna has a cool bag of gadgets and likes to have them on hand in case of an emergency. I don’t know if she was a girl scout, but she would have made a good one. She always has an updated hurricane kit and is ready to go.

I have left the office late many a night and Shawna was still in the office making sure the work got done. When you work behind the scenes, most folks don't realize the details that have to be settled to do the kind of work we do. As Shawna will tell you, details matter.

Shawna plans to retire on October 1, 2022, and begin to pursue her bucket list. It’s a great list. You should ask her about it.

- Ron

Comments from Shawna’s coworkers

  • “Shawna always goes the extra mile to be sure things are correct in her paper trail....”

  • “Always willing to help & keeps excellent notes.”

  • “Team player, and always goes above and beyond.”

  • “Shawna understands the importance of showing her Team that they are valued and appreciated. She is generous with verbal recognition and more than once a thank you note and sweet treat was left on my desk. Also, she was always willing to mentor, teach or support anyone who needed help. She will be missed.”

  • “Always working hard and makes sure her work is accurate.”

  • “If anyone deserves this, it’s Shawna. The true definition of committed to doing the best job possible.”

  • “She always goes above and beyond on everything.”

  • “Shawna is an asset to Lone Star Communications Houston. She will be greatly missed after she retires.“

"Shawna is one of the hardest working people I have ever known. Her tireless dedication was a major part of the success of Halco and she has been a huge asset to Lone Star as well.

Her work ethic is amazing and we will miss her terribly. Here is hoping she can finally put her feet up and kick back. She has certainly earned it ." - Jamie Selman


Shawna will receive her gift set from behind door #11.5 in Ron’s office and we will add her name to the plaque in the front lobby alongside the other 2022 Employees of the Month (Joel Orellana, Cris Ortega, Andrew Mueller, Carlos Melo, Debra Sandoval, Ernie Chavez, Marquis Woodard, Hector Ruiz).

Finally, Shawna will receive a limited-edition Employee of the Month commemorative custom coin designed by our own Cliff Switzer.
