Great Brook Elementary School nurse Linda Compton has been nominated for the 2021-2022 National LifeChanger of the Year award. Sponsored by the National Life Group Foundation, LifeChanger of the Year recognizes and rewards K-through-12 educators and school district employees who are making a difference in the lives of students by exemplifying excellence, positive influence and leadership.

Compton was nominated by her colleague, Paula MacKinnon, for being an effective liaison between her students’ parents, their medical home and their teachers. She collaborates with medical providers to ensure she's providing the best possible care for students with complex medical needs. Compton has also served on the board of the New Hampshire School Nurses' Association in several different roles, including as president in 2006 and 2016.

"Linda is truly a LifeChanger, not only for her students, but as a resource for school nurses in New Hampshire and across the nation, giving them the support they need for quality, evidence-based practice," stated MacKinnon. 

Eighteen individual LifeChanger of the Year awards will be given during the 2021-2022 school year. The grand prize winner will receive $10,000 to be shared with their school or district, and four grand prize finalists will receive $5,000.

Ten LifeChanger Award winners will receive $3,000, and the Spirit Award Winner – given to the nominee whose community demonstrates the most support for their nomination – will receive $5,000. The $3,000 Capstone Award is given to a nominee retiring at the end of the 2020-2021 school year, and the Spotlight Award winner will receive $5,000.

Winners are chosen by a selection committee comprised of former winners and education professionals.
