The 2019 Fred Award finalists are:
1. Russell Harrison (Custodian, Pike County Schools)
2. Michael Johnson (Custodian, Boone County Schools)
3. Angela Shoemaker (Custodian, Muhlenberg County Schools)
The Fred Award is a favorite for KASA members, drawing in nominations from school districts across the commonwealth each year. The award, inspired by Fred Shea, the postman who became the subject of Mark Sanborn’s national best seller, The Fred Factor, recognizes non-administrative staff statewide whose daily efforts are deemed extraordinary and integral to a positive learning atmosphere in their school communities. Finalists for this award must embody four guiding principles: makes a positive difference each day; has a heart for people; changes ordinary moments into memorable ones; and leads by example.
