Dear Randolph Pointe Residents,
Keeping our community looking great is a team effort. The Randolph Pointe team is out every morning picking up trash to ensure that the grounds are clean. The most common litter we find in the community includes cigarette butts, plastic bags, paper, candy wrappers, fast-food packaging, bottle caps, plastic bottles / cans, and straws.
Despite all their efforts, we are missing one piece - the help of you, our residents. It may not be your trash on the ground but picking it up and disposing of it properly helps keep the community looking great and a place that you are proud to call home.
We appreciate everything that you do and that you have provided us the opportunity to meet your housing needs. Thanks for helping us keep Randolph Pointe a beautiful community!
Your community calendar can help you stay up-to-date on trash, recycling, lawn care, resident events and community activities.
You can even sync your community calendar with a personal Google calendar by clicking on the +Google button on the bottom right-hand corner of the calendar.

Corvias Foundation, a private, charitable foundation and the charitable arm of Corvias Group, has been committed to supporting military families in the pursuit of higher education since 2006. This year, its 10th, Corvias Foundation has awarded college scholarships of up to $50,000 to seven outstanding high school students from Fort Bragg, as part of the 11th class of scholarship recipients.
The scholarships provide reliable, recurring financial assistance over each student’s four years of study, as well as a support network that is committed to his or her academic and professional growth. Students receive scholarships in the amount of up to $12,500 per year for four years to pursue a secondary education at colleges and universities around the country.
“Each year, we are awed by the drive and determination in these military family members to reach high in their goals and dreams, and all the while, giving back to their communities,” said Maria Montalvo, Foundation Executive Director, “Being able to support our scholars financially and through ongoing mentoring and other opportunities is an honor we cannot quantify.”
Corvias Foundation awarded the scholarships based on merit and need. Each student was required to respond to four questions that highlighted different aspects of their lives as students and as members of an active-duty military family. This fall, each student will be attending the four-year institution of his or her choice to pursue their academic careers.
“The impressive background and equally strong ambition of the scholars never ceases to amaze me and we have another phenomenal class this year,” said John Picerne. “It’s exciting to see a group of kids from different parts of the country, coast to coast, in fact, share the common bond of a military background and also share the road to college. The college experience is about much more than academic success, and we look forward to seeing how these next four years, and more, help to shape these future leaders of America.”
Since 2006, the Corvias Foundation has awarded more than $6.5 million through 349 educational grants and scholarships to spouses and children at 13 different Army and Air Force installations. Among this year’s scholarship recipients are aspiring anthropologists, journalists, cardiologists, dieticians and psychologists.
The 11 graduating seniors are the children of active-duty service members stationed at Edwards Air Force Base in California, Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska, Fort Bragg and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, both in North Carolina. Fort Bragg was represented by seven scholars.

Sometimes you may feel inundated with all the surveys that appear in your inbox and on the receipt of nearly ever purchase you make. As customers, our opinions hold a lot of worth in the decisions that are made in businesses and as people we all desire to have our voices heard. Survey results can determine what items you see in your favorite restaurants, which items they bring back, the types of advertising you watch, and the changes you want to see in your community.
As Corvias residents, your concerns are concerns of ours and we want them to be heard. As Lieutenant General Halverson stated in the MEMORANDUM FOR Residents Living in Residential Communities Initiative Privatized Housing “Sharing your feedback about your experiences while residing in a privatized housing community is critical to shaping the future housing and services provided to the Army.” Your survey responses are shaping the future! That holds so much more value than a penny or two cents.
If the responsibility and privilege of your feedback shaping the future is not incentive enough, we have a grand prize of 1 month’s FREE rent! All you need to do is check your email and take your survey to be registered. Hurry, you only have until June 6 to complete your survey!
Please feel free to contact your community office for details or assistance if you have not received your Army Survey from ArmyHousingSurvey@celassociates.com. Be sure to also check your spam box. We look forward to hearing from all of our valued residents what you love about living with us as well as what we can do to better meet your needs.
We would like to provide a friendly reminder that all service animals and/or emotional support animals must be on a leash when in the community. Leash requirements are to ensure both the safety of the animal and fellow residents. Residents are also responsible for cleaning up after his/her service animal or emotional support animal. Thank you for helping to keep the community looking great!
A friendly reminder to dispose of cigarettes properly. Do not dispose of cigarettes in the grass or mulch areas as it can cause brush fires. In the last month, the Fire Department has had to respond to Randolph Pointe three times to extinguish a brush fire caused by a cigarette. We don’t want to see the property, a resident, or a resident’s personal property damaged by a fire that was preventable. Thank you for your help on this matter.
The warmer season has arrived. Ensuring that all residents’ air conditioners are working properly is a top priority. If you have not already done so, please test your air conditioner now to ensure that there are not any concerns. If you do have any concerns about the functioning of your air conditioner system, please place a work order via our work order hotline at 1-866-206-1365. Response times that we strive to meet are:
· Air conditioner calls when the high temperature is 85 degrees or higher: Response time to be 4 hours or less. Completed within 24 hours.
· Air conditioner calls when high temperature is 85 degrees or lower: Completed within 2 business days.
Residents should only park in parking spaces. Parking in front of the dumpsters and/or fire hydrants is not allowed and cars doing so will be ticketed by the military police. A car blocking a fire hydrant can also be towed by the military police. Additionally, handicap parking spaces in the community require that the car have the proper tags on it. Residents illegally parking in a handicap spot will be ticketed by the military police.
Parking spaces are also for vehicles and motorcycles. Trailers are not authorized to be parked in the community. If you are loading or unloading a trailer and need to park it temporarily, contact your community center so that arrangements can be made.
Keep curtains and shades closed to help keep sunlight out. The sun can increase the temperature in a room by several degrees. Utilize ceiling or portable fans which can reduce energy use by about 25%. Fans can make the temperature seem 10 degrees cooler.
