Linda McCullough

Biography

My name is Linda Flowers McCullough. I grew up as the seventh child in my family. I was blessed to be the only one who had a Godmother and Godfather. They played a significant role in my life, so much so that when I wasn’t with my biological parents I was spending time with them. They help mold my life as my father and mother did.

Accustomed to being around my older siblings, I was always mature for my age. During my adolescent years I participated in pageants, talent shows and excelled in school. My mind was set on two professions since I was young but I narrowed my decision and set my ambitions on becoming a teacher.

I am an 1976 Alumni of Voorhees College. While there I pledged Delta Sigma Theta, sung on the choir and was an exchange student. My profession as a teacher began in the city of Augusta, Georgia. I was a Title One teacher for 9 years. I decided to extend my career in a new environment and made Atlanta, Georgia my home. I retired from the Atlanta Public Schools system.

I love teaching so much that when I am not volunteering, I occasionally substitute. I have one son Evan J. McCullough. I volunteer at a various organizations including Southwest Atlanta Youth Business Organization, Students Talking Out Problems, and AARP. Currently, I serve as the President for the Metro Atlanta Chapter of Voorhees College. This esteem title has granted me the opportunity to serve my Alma Matta and create change in youth’s lives supporting HBCU participation.
