A round of Applause! for HHS’ Linda Koning

This week, we’re applauding Linda Koning of the Health and Human Services Division.

“When the LCC campus quickly transitioned to a remote work environment in March 2020, Linda Koning became the keeper of the HHS office plants left behind,” Susan McEwan wrote in the award. “As the time away from the physical office workspace grew, Linda’s office space became a greenhouse, where she watered and cared for the lonely plants, keeping them well-nourished until the time when HHS employees returned to the Downtown Campus. All of the plants in Linda’s care survived and are looking forward to greeting HHS building occupants upon their return to campus. HHS sends its appreciation to the ‘plant whisperer,’ a.k.a. Linda Koning.”
