Dick Smith Library – Upper Level – room 201B

In September, Linda celebrated 30 years with Tarleton. Linda first worked in the library while a student at Tarleton, and in 1978 she was hired as a clerk in the circulation department. She is now responsible for the supervision and management of the Library Administration office. Linda oversees all library accounts for budget control, policy adherence and internal audit; and analyzes fiscal data for use in decision making and planning processes. Although behind the scenes, Linda is key to the smooth operation of the library.

Linda has served as Tarleton’s Staff Council President, and was named Staff Employee of the Month in May, 1999. She is a Certified Professional Secretary (which required extensive testing and earned her 24 hours of college credit), and is also a Certified Educational Office Professional. Linda is Secretary/Treasurer of the Friends of the Dick Smith Library Board.

Linda just received her 20-year Girl Scout membership pin, is treasurer of the Erath County Service Unit, and is assistant leader for her granddaughter’s troop. Linda is also the treasurer of Mistletoe Hut, Inc., a Stephenville nonprofit, and sings with a Southern Gospel group.
