Got Fred? Nominate him or her for the 2015 KASA Fred Award
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. Nominees 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. If this sounds like someone in your district, then you've got Fred.
