KATY, TX – July 24, 2013 – Firethorne has named longtime Katy resident Margaret Sparkman manager of its 1,700-member homeowners association (HOA.) Located on FM 1463 in Katy/Fulshear, the 1,400-acre master-planned community, will have 3,400 homes when completed.
“Margaret is an accountant who also brings to the position 12 years classroom experience working for Katy ISD,” said Firethorne General Manager Wayne Meyer. “The truly unusual turn of events is that by accepting this position, she’s following in her daughter Katie’s footsteps!”
Katie Sparkman served as Firethorne Homeowners Association Manager (HOA) from July 2010 to June 2013.
As manager of the Firethorne HOA, Margaret Sparkman oversees the community’s deed restriction enforcement and day-to-day operations and assists the resident committees, including amenities and special events committees. “I closely followed my daughter’s career at Firethorne. When this job came open, I proposed that my background in accounting and budgeting, along with my people skills as a teacher, would be the right combination,” she said.
