Flaget Grad Honored by Alma Mater

A 1972 Bishop Flaget graduate and former Bishop Flaget Board member is the recipient of Flaget's 2019 Distinguished Alumni Award.

-

John Albright has been selected for that award due to his steadfast support of the school and its students. Albright served on the school's board of education in the late 1980s and has since been a regular around the school, performing various maintenance projects, judging science fair projects, and helping to build a new STEM classroom and develop relationships for the school's STEM designation. He is also overseeing an energy-efficient HVAC project which will move the school building from its reliance on an aging boiler.

As a student at Bishop Flaget in the early 1970s, Albright would provide assistance to school maintenance staff by waxing floors and performing various maintenance tasks. He would also devote time to parking cars during school basketball games. Following his graduation in 1972, Albright went on to work as a welder at the atomic plant in Piketon, where he worked his way up to Project Operations Manager.

Sadly, John's son Johnny passed away of Sudden Instant Death Syndrome in 1982, but he made the best of the tragedy by seeking donations for St. Peter's School in he and his wife's name. The money raised during the time was used for Chillicothe's first Catholic kindergarten, which started in the 1982-1983 school year.

-

John is married to Lynn Albright and together, have two daughters: Terrina Fahnestock, who is currently a Bishop Flaget staff member, and Katy Edwards. He is also the proud grandfather of three grandchildren.
