At SHARE Foundation’s Annual Employee Meetings, Dr. Brian Jones, President and CEO, announced the “Linda Stringfellow Spirit of SHARE” Award winners for 2023.

The “Spirit of SHARE” Award was created in 2004 to recognize employees of SHARE Foundation who go above and beyond their everyday duties. In 2017, the award was renamed in honor of retiring SHARE President/COO Linda Stringfellow to the “Linda Stringfellow Spirit of SHARE” Award.  Employees who have been with SHARE for at least one year are eligible with the exception of the President/CEO.

Nominees are made by fellow SHARE employees and are evaluated on their willingness to go the extra mile, as well as their compassion, loyalty, responsibility, and integrity toward their co-workers, patients, and members. An anonymous committee of the SHARE Foundation Board reviews the nominations and makes the selections.

This year there were two finalists and one, overall winner.  Both finalists received an engraved award and an EXTRA day of paid vacation.  The winner received an engraved plaque and an additional week of paid vacation.

The following comments are from the nomination forms.
