Fritch named TVA Engineer of the Year

Abdiel Vallejo-Lopez, TVA Staff Writer

Growing up in the small town of Dunlap, Tennessee, Timothy Fritch had a natural inclination to tinker.

Curiosity drove him.

It wasn’t long before he discovered a passion for electrical engineering — a passion that has only grown stronger over the years.

His commitment and contributions to the world of engineering were recognized this week during a celebration in Chattanooga, where he received Tennessee Valley Authority’s Engineer of the Year award. And as Fritch sees it, it all started with a RadioShack lab kit. He can remember it still. A brightly colored kit, equipped with flickering lights and fans that would run with the touch of a wire.
