Linda will tell you her two strongest role models were her parents, because of their accomplishments she was inspired to become a leader.
Her parent’s accomplishments and determination gave Linda the ability to see that anything was possible if she believed in herself and worked hard.
Retiring after 22 years of service in its Human Resources Department. During her time at Texas A&M University, Linda served as chair of both the TAMU Improvement Council and the TAMU Professional Organization. While she is proud of her achievements at TAMU, her greatest joy comes from her volunteer work for the North Bryan Community Center through the Bethune Women’s Club. For 20 years Linda has chaired the NBCC’s Annual Cotillion Ball and Sweetheart Ball. Linda describes herself as a people person.
Linda thrives on giving back to the community she’s been blessed to be a part of. Other organizations Linda has supported include The Prenatal Clinic, Brazos Valley Community Action Agency, College Station Independent School District, African American Professional Organization, and Mount Vernon Missionary Baptist Church, Girl Scouts of Central Texas and now the Salvation Army.
Linda’s advice is to get involved and stay involved, and once you have accomplished your goals, reach back out and help someone else with their journey.
