Adult Student Scholarship in Honor of Linda Mead

This scholarship fund was created in Linda’s name to keep her spirit, legacy and passion for adult education alive in our memories and deeds.

 Linda was the first Adult Education Family Literacy teacher in the Family Tree Program at Mesa Public Schools. She later served as the district Adult Education and Family Literacy Director. In addition to her work with the school district, Linda taught part time at Chandler Gilbert Community College. In retirement, Linda was instrumental in creating a church-based adult school which continues to provide free classes in GED, ESL and Citizenship preparation.

Linda Mead - 5/15/46 to 7/22/20

AALL is a proud partner of #MoveAheadWithAdultEd, a new national campaign enrolling adult learners into career training programs that equip them with skills that lead to jobs paying a family-sustaining wage.

The campaign targets the millions of Americans who need to reskill or upskill to re-enter the workforce.
