On Tuesday, October 16, our Sain team and members of Lauren Spruiell Nickles’ family gathered for a company breakfast to celebrate the 2018 recipient of our Spirit of Lauren Award. The award was established to honor the legacy of Lauren, our friend and co-worker. The award is given annually to recognize an employee, who during the previous year, exemplified hospitality, kindness, commitment, persistence and a positive attitude. Through the award we seek to recognize an employee who is a leader among his/her peers and who consistently works hard for the good of others. 

The 2018 Spirit of Lauren Award recipient is Alicia Bailey, Sain’s Infrastructure Team Leader in Birmingham. Alicia was nominated by one of her team members who wrote that he was impressed with the determination and positive attitude Alicia has shown in the face of personal health challenges and the demands of work and family life. Even in adversity, Alicia remembers to show concern and encouragement to others in the company. Her kindness and dedication to being the best engineer and leader she can be is inspiring.

In recognition of Alicia’s motivating leadership, the Spirit of Lauren Award provides a $500 gift card and a $500 contribution to the recipient’s healthcare or engineering charity of choice. Alicia has selected the Sarcoma Alliance to receive the gift. The Sarcoma Alliance ( provides support, guidance and education to people affected by sarcoma.

Join us in congratulating Alicia Bailey for this well-deserved recognition.
