Patricia Albritton was named the 2022 Lincoln County Schools Fred Award winner. Albritton, an EC Instructional Assistant at Lincoln County High School, started with the district in 2003.

The Fred Award is reserved for Lincoln County Schools classified support staff that consistently go above and beyond the call of duty for students and staff. According to a school system news release, Fred Award nominees are “the beacon of brightness in buildings that seek little to no affirmation, but continually step up to the plate to make a difference in the lives of students and the culture of schools.”

Inspired by well-known author Mark Sanborn, the award is named in honor of Fred Shea, the subject of Sanborn’s national bestseller, The Fred Factor. Nominations for this distinctive award should embody the four principles described in the book – an individual who chooses to make a positive difference each day, has a heart for people, changes ordinary moments into memorable ones and leads by example.
