Linda Casey (’74) earns state foresters award


Casey Linda

Feb. 1, 2017 – Linda Casey (’74 B.S. forestry and wildlife) received the 2016 James Hubbard Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of State Foresters.

Throughout her career, Casey has constantly broken barriers in a male-dominated industry. After college, she became International Paper’s first female forester and spent 33 years with the company, moving from state to state and climbing the career ladder. Then she served as state forester in the Alabama Forestry Commission — the first woman to hold such a position in the Deep South. She retired from that position in 2014.
