Linda Foltz, UCCS Student Services, Retired
Linda was a nontraditional student herself, earning her BS in Social Sciences from Florida State University in 1985 at the age of 32. This accomplishment required seven years and four schools as she accompanied her husband during his many transfers while in the U.S. Army. Linda and her family finally settled in Colorado Springs in 1986. She recently retired from UCCS after 25 years, primarily working in student services such as academic advising and transfer student recruitment. Linda believes strongly in the power of education and has witnessed first-hand the impact of so many students achieving their educational goals over the years. For this reason, Linda is very excited at the prospect of serving as a mentor to a KPWE scholar. Linda has a lifelong love of traveling and is doing so more than ever now that she's retired. Her other interests include touring with her sports car club and skiing with her grandson. Linda's community involvement over the years has included fostering children while living in Panama, tutoring ESL students for the Pikes Peak Library District, and while employed at UCCS she served on committees such as Traffic and Transportation, Staff Council Nomination, and Sexual Harassment.
