Smith named Chamber's Volunteer of Year
Linda Smith, UCPS Career Development Coordinator, has been named the Union County Chamber of Commerce Volunteer of the Year.
Smith, who also serves as job broker for Union County JobReady Partnership, was named by the chamber during its Dec. 4, 2008, annual Year in Review banquet. “Her focus is on building and maintaining positive relationships between business, industry and education,” said the Chamber 2008 Chair, Lisa Hildreth during the presentation.
Smith was chosen in light of her work on the Chamber’s Business Showcase Committee, the Literacy Council’s Board of Directors, Centralina Workforce Development’s Youth Council Board of Directors, and for being a Chamber Leadership Union alumni.
Smith also served on the Chamber’s Business Expo Committee, volunteered for the Spring Golf Classic, and served as a volunteer for Youth Leadership Union after she took the lead role in developing and implementing the program, Hildreth said.
