Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Linda Estes Carrington


Finally I really do have "the check in the mail". Now to try and condense 50 years of life into a tolerable narrative.

Upon graduation from EHS, I went to Mississippi State College for Women and had the most wonderful time.

My sophomore year I met my husband at a Kappa Sig Party and yes we both had different dates.
His date was Miss Mississippi State. You know, the long legs and the long silky hair. The only thing she had missing was the crown on her head that night. I was under 5 feet then as I am now and did not have long silky hair. Jack called me the next week for a date. I was suspicious so I declined. Thank goodness he kept trying. We went through all the "stages" of being "dropped", "pinned" and finally engaged. We married after we both graduated.

Jack was working for the Federal Government and his first post was in Jackson, MS. Exactly what we wanted. We settled in and I got a teaching position in Madison, MS teaching juniors and seniors history and government. It was an interesting time to be teaching in Mississippi Public Schools and my students were only 3 to 4 years younger than me. But I loved it and still have contact with many of my former students.

We adopted a beautiful baby boy from the state 3 years after we got married. We also started building our dream home on the shores of a local lake with all our neighbors being our college buddies. How perfect was this life and the setting!

But life intervened. Shortly after moving into our dream house, Jack was offered a dream position of being the head of the Inspector's General regional office in Dallas for the newly formed EPA. So off we went with me kicking screaming because I did not want to leave our idyllic Mississippi life and all our friends.

We found a wonderful neighborhood in Richardson with a wonderful school district. Jack started his demanding position and I was a stay at home Mom enjoying our life and making long term friends that I still see very, very often. In fact, I haven't moved out of the neighborhood as well as most of my original neighbors.

After Flinn started school, I went to work and started my long and varied career. I started with Amana and so enjoyed my time with that really great company meeting lots of golf professionals who were wearing the Amana hats or visors. When Amana was sold to Raytheon, I went to American Greetings and rapidly advanced to being the first female Regional Manager working directly under the VP. Was the first female to eat in the executive dining room at the corporate head office in Cleveland - a real experience I will never forget.

The American Greetings job became too demanding and far too much travel for a wife and mother of an early teen. So I took a position with a small, private manufacturer of teaching/school supplies. I remained with TREND for over 12 years as a sales manager.

Then life intervened again. Jack died after a short illness. I now had to remake my life whether I liked it or not.

I entered SMU Grad school and got a Masters in Dispute Resolution which is a hybrid degree between the Law School and the Psychology department. Had to do a mediation internship to get my state certification.

Joined forces with a former SMU classmate and we mediated together being based out of 1 of the most notable law firms in Plano, TX. It also helped that my mediation partner was also at that time the Mayor Pro Tem of Plano! We were able to stay very busy.

Life intervened once again. I was diagnosed with Stage 3B cancer so my work days were over so that I could fight the fight. Successfully went through chemo and radiation.

While recuperating from the rigors of cancer treatment, a dear friend who just so happen to be a long term Collin County Commissioner, asked me to come and fill a supervisory position at the Collin County Courts. I thought this would be a great way to use that expensive SMU degree.

While at the Collin County Courts, Tyler Technologies approached me to work with them. Tyler had been awarded the contact to implement their court management software not only in the Collin County courts but also most of the large state courts' system across the nation.

I started extensive travel across the nation, consulting, training, and implementing their court management software. Who knew Key West had a booming probate court business!!!!

After several years of traveling across the nation week after week, when Tyler offered me an early out - I accepted it with a huge smile. I was looking forward to putting the suitcase away and playing golf everyday.

I did not put the suitcase totally away but I did play golf almost everyday. I also made a "bucket list".

One item on the bucket list was to take the Master Gardener class. My Mom has been a Union County Master Gardener for a long time and she loves it so I thought this might be something interesting. However, Texas A & M who teaches the class takes it much more seriously than Arkansas and Union County does!

Toward the end of the 5 month class, I was approached by an A&M professor to be a research assistant at the Research Center in Dallas. The Research Center is located very close to my house so I accepted the offer but only on the condition that I could work 20 to 25 hours a week. That way I could keep some semblance of retirement and continue being involved in all the activities I was enjoying.

Have been at the Research Center for over 3 years and love it. I just finished a Texas Bluegrass project which proves to be very successful and promising.

I am presently using my remaining available time in several community activities and board appointments. Presently am serving on the Collin County Grand Jury which is a phenomenal
experience. Also serve on and am an officer of the Child Protective Services Board. For the last 5 years have been the Volunteer Chair for the WildRide which raises millions for the Richardson Cancer Center. Also am very active in the local and state Republican party serving the last 3 years as the Scholarship Chair. Am a state certified Master Gardener and am the project lead of the newsletter which is distributed out to about 250 members each week.

My son lives in Dallas with his wife of 3 years and owns a very successful company serving law enforcement training needs. Both he and his wife are very busy in their careers so no grandchildren yet. But I am still optimistic it will happen soon. It is so nice that they are close and we can see each other often.

My brother, Bo, who graduated from EHS in 1970 also lives in Dallas with his wife. So for over 30 years we have been able to raise our boys to know each other and have wonderful family gatherings.

My Mom still lives in El Dorado and I have been for over 5 years going at least once a month to visit her. She is 93 and going strong. She hasn't curtailed her life in any way but I still come to make sure she is okay. The truth is she is probably doing better than me!!!!!!

Thanks to Jim Moore and all those on the Reunion Committee. Your diligence and time is immensely appreciated. Looking forward to a fun weekend with everyone.
