Linda's trail-blazing work in Children's Programming included senior executive positions at Nickelodeon, Nick at Nite, and Scholastic Media. In addition, as Director of Programming Operations for Bridge Multimedia, she was instrumental in making educational children's TV programming and gaming accessible to blind/visually impaired and learning disabled students.
The Institute was always a helpful beacon, supporting Linda's accessibility projects. Now, Linda's fund will help support our students.
