Linda is active in the community’s educational sector, serving on, among others, the RE-1 District Strategic Planning Team, the Canon City High School Advisory Committee, and the Garden Park High School Advisory Board, as well as founding the Mountain View Core Knowledge School.  Linda is also active in the community’s arts life, as an artist and musician.  Furthermore, Linda has served the community in a variety of organizations such as the Canon City Chamber of Commerce, P.E.O.
