In 2000, Linda lost her husband, Tom, a captain with the Arkansas State Police, who was killed in the line of duty. As a result, she joined C.O.P.S., an organization dedicated to providing peer support and resources to assist in rebuilding the lives of surviving families and co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.
After attending a national C.O.P.S. conference in Washington, D.C., Linda returned to Arkansas and started a state chapter. She was made vice president of the chapter in 2002 and later became president, a position she has held for the past two years.
Linda has offered her friendship and counsel to many families in Arkansas. Her goal has been to help survivors during their grieving process by sharing her experience and offering her unwavering understanding and commitment to helping them realize they are not alone.
Society needs people who are willing to set the bar high so others will be challenged
Both modest and selfless, Linda does not see herself as a “hero,” but does hope her life and story can be encouraging to others. “My heroes are first responders, particularly police officers. When people are running away from danger and chaos, first responders are running straight into the face of danger to protect and serve society,” she explains.
We are honored to announce Linda Craig as the recipient of The Ripple Effect award. At Rainwater, Holt & Sexton, we think of ourselves as more than Arkansas personal injury lawyers, we think of ourselves as part of an incredibly giving community.
Do you know someone who deserves this award? Nominate a local hero today. What better way for us to give back to our heroes?
