2021 Spirit of Lauren Award

On October 7, our Sain family gathered for the Spirit of Lauren Award, an annual award given in memory of Lauren Nickles, our beloved friend and coworker. We celebrated with a company-wide, old-fashioned breakfast, which was one of Lauren’s favorite things. We were excited to have Lauren’s mother, aunt, and children present with us to honor her memory and celebrate another Spirit of Lauren Award winner.

Through this award, we recognize an employee who demonstrates hospitality, kindness, commitment, persistence, and a positive attitude – characteristics we admired in Lauren during her time with Sain. Our 2021 recipient of the Spirit of Lauren Award is Jennifer Brown. Jennifer is a member of our Traffic team in Birmingham and exemplifies the qualities we remember in Lauren. She also works with the youth at her church, reflecting a selflessness and willingness to invest in the next generation.

Coworkers describe Jennifer as always being kind and hospitable. Her team members highlighted that she is persistent and committed, and they admire her dependability and professionalism.

The Spirit of Lauren Award provides a $500 gift card and a $500 contribution to an engineering or healthcare charity selected by the recipient. Jennifer has chosen Designs for Hope for her charitable donation.

Congratulations, Jennifer! Your positive attitude is contagious, and we are grateful to have you as part of the Sain family.
