Attorney Linda Johnson of McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton Professional Association was recently presented the 2014 Sister Madeleine of Jesus Award – the highest honor bestowed upon an alumna or alumnus by Rivier Alumni Association.
Linda, a member of the Rivier University Board of Trustees and the Class of 1981, was recognized for her leadership, vision, and devotion to service.
From Rivier Today – the magazine of Rivier University:
Linda has dedicated her life to serving her neighbor and has worked to protect and advance the interests of children, employees, and employers. She has served on the boards and leadership committees of many non-profit and professional organizations giving her time, talent, and treasure to her local community and beyond.
Linda was credited with raising her children to be global citizens. Her son, Douglas, is a professional dancer based in Tel Aviv, Israel, and her daughter, Katie, is the communications director for Angkor Children’s Hospital in Siem Reap, Cambodia, where Linda also volunteers her time and expertise to work on human resource projects and legal issues.
Named in recognition of the outstanding leadership of Sister Madeleine of Jesus, the award was established in 1974 and recognizes outstanding alumni who have distinguished themselves in service to Rivier, their profession, and their community.
