Linda Keen, a volunteer at Mead Botanical Garden, was named to Winter Park Magazine’s list of the city’s most influential people. Keen, who is married to Rollins chairman of the board of trustees Allan Keen ’70 ’71MBA, is profiled along with fellow Mead Garden volunteers under the deadline “The Gardeners” in the magazine’s summer 2016 issue.
Winter Park Magazine Editor Randy Noles notes that in addition to Keen’s work at Mead Gardens, she’s a civic activist. Noles includes Keen’s remark, “My personal goal for Winter Park is to enrich and enhance the vision and make Mead Botanical Garden the best place for community, emphasizing its importance as a unique city asset and how lucky we are to have it.”
Keen has been an active participant in the campus community at Rollins and long-time donor of the College.
