(PLANO, TEXAS) – At Milestone, we are centered around being more than just a local home service company, but being a local home service company that provides the most excellent service, gives back to the community it serves, and fosters a culture that team members thrive and succeed in. This past month Milestone had the vision to do something unlike ever before for the community we serve. On February 21, 2020, Milestone team members honored a brother/sister duo, who both serve as Plano police officers and their families with a 4 night trip to Disney World. We are so excited to share this story with our blog readers!
It all began when the holiday season came to a close and our Milestone team wanted to recognize Dallas/Fort Worth-area first responders who selflessly give their time to serve and protect our communities. We felt that this sacrifice must be especially hard during the holiday season and wanted to provide an opportunity for a first responder to win some special time off spent at Disney World with family, nominated by their fellow community members.
Natasha Mings and Kenneth Mings were both nominated multiple times into the giveaway. Their nominations revealed insight into their hearts for service and the sacrifices they both make with their commitment to honorably serve the Plano Community. Both Natasha and Kenneth chose this career after graduating from college. Kenneth was a football player and says that passion translates through choosing a career as a police officer. He enjoys continuing his days on his feet, being active, and interacting with co-workers in a team atmosphere. Natasha is a single mom to an elementary-aged daughter and often works the night shifts in Plano. When they were chosen by Milestone team members, we reached out to the siblings’ sister to plan the surprise.
On February 21, 2020, Natasha and Kenneth showed up to the Plano Main Police Department for what they both thought was an office meeting but were completely shocked when they walked into a room of family, coworkers, and cameras. Natasha’s daughter ran to give a hug, her too also unaware of the surprise to come. Her daughter opened a wrapped gift, which held a Disney t-shirt saying “Disney Trip 2020”, nomination stories were read, and the surprise details were announced!
It was such a special day and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing and hearing all about their adventure to come. Milestone is committed to honoring and supporting our first responders, as well as our United States veterans.
