Valley View Apartments
Manitowoc, WI

Scott has embraced every aspect of managing, and living, at Valley View Apartments. Not only is he the manager, maintenance man and janitor, he is also a resident, bingo caller, cookie maker, grill master, and interior decorator.

The changes at Valley View since Scott became part of the RHF team include a complete overhaul of the landscaping. He included installation of a fountain and a community garden that he tills every year, including the residents in the decision of what is going to be planted. This garden helps to supplement the residents’ grocery purchases and helps to ensure that they can enjoy fresh vegetables in their diet.

Scott transformed a rarely-used outside sitting area into a place where residents can sit and watch deer that come onto the property. This serene and tranquil spot is now a very popular place for residents to socialize.

Valley View is also very energy conscious and has implemented a recycling program. All the apartments have had low-flow faucets, shower heads, and energy star rated appliances installed.

Scott has also acted as interim manager at Richardson Manor, overseeing major rehab work at the project and is utilized by his regional manager to help new managers “learn the ropes.”

He is a major supporter of Valley View’s Project HANDS program which has resulted in that community’s generous participation in a number of different ways– whether it is cooking meals for a men’s homeless shelter or creating care packages for a local shelter for women and children.

RHF is pleased to present Scott Siehr with the 2015 Manager of the Year Award.
