Growing Up in the Wiregrass
A native of Enterprise, Alabama, the foundational values of faith, family, and freedom were instilled in Senator Britt from an early age. The proud daughter of two small business owners, she quickly learned the importance of hard work, grit, and determination. Growing up outside the gates of Fort Rucker (renamed Fort Novosel in 2023), she witnessed firsthand the incredible sacrifices of America’s servicemen and women, as well as their families. Senator Britt graduated from Enterprise High School in 2000.
