SQuad of
the Month

Our squad of the month program recognizes and honors top performers at the company each month. Check out the stories behind our most recent winners!

On-site Office SQuad Member Faith Ward, Student Quarters Johnson City, Community Assistant
Read More
Since the staffing changes Faith has stepped up not only to assist with AGM and LM duties but also stepped up to serve as a mentor to our three new Community Assistants. Always willing to help train, come in when not scheduled for a shift, and to cross-train in other positions to ensure the necessary functions of the property are completed. She has shown great leadership skills and patience while always keeping the best interest of the property in mind.

Also, the C and S team recently called Johnson City during a company-wide sales training and Faith picked up. She knocked the call out of the park and passed. She set the tone and showed everyone what best in class means. Way to go Faith!
On-site Facilities SQuad Member Shaun Holzkamper, 400 Meeting, Maintenance Supervisor
Read More
Shaun expressed the Squad mentality this past month by providing crucial support for a sister property. For those that do not know Shaun, he is a one-man show, maintenance supervisor at 400 Meeting. He completes all work orders within 24 hours and drives the customer service experience. He owns what he does every day! Shaun isn’t privy to only supporting his team and residents at 400, but also encourages support for any person or sister property within SQ. Shaun is a “value creator”, he brought landscaping in-house to save $500 a month ($6,000 a year or over $100K in value with a 5.5% cap rate). He thinks, acts, and executes as an owner. When traveling to support a sister site, he was able to save the team roughly $8–10K by not having to vendor out services. He also dedicated time and energy to work and create a partnership with the onsite service team. Now that’s true value. Shaun is a rockstar!

Also, congrats to Shaun on being named a SQ Coach this month!
Corporate SQuad Member
Corporate SQuad Member Morgan Grigsby, Director of Operations Support
Read More
Morgan has gotten on a plane or driven to multiple properties to help out anytime she has been asked. She has recently led two due diligence projects and our recent transitions, she has led multiple community and portfolio cleanups/audits, she has negotiated portfolio contract costs (saved big money!!), and that is just scratching the surface. Morgan is the ultimate team player and we are so lucky to have her.



Before working at Student Quarters, I had trouble finding a company that had everything I was looking for to feel at home. I wanted culture that allowed me to be me. I wanted team members that felt like family. I wanted to feel appreciated by the corporate team. I can comfortably say that all my boxes have been checked and I have found a company with everything I have been looking for! Since joining the SQuad, I have found support, culture, and family flowing in from all positions!

Student Quarters is a place brimming with employee enthusiasm and major opportunity. Very few places leave one feeling quite so optimistic about the future direction of the company in a way that makes you want to dig in and do your part to the best of their ability. This translates not only in daily tasks, but across cultural initiatives and community projects that SQ takes part in as well. Even through the challenges that come with exponential growth, we are forging something really special and I personally want to be a part of the SQ story that’s unfolding- can’t wait for the next chapter!

Sharon Maxwell

Property Accounts Manager


When interviewing with a new company, you never know if what you are told is the truth until you actually start. Since joining the SQuad, I can tell you that everything I hoped would be true, is true. The people are genuine, and let you truly run without holding you back. There is ample coaching, but there is also ample freedom to come in, grind, and work. As a part of the SQuad, you are not a number or an employee, but instead a valuable piece of the puzzle that is respected, cared for, and treated well.
