Linda Burruss

It is with great PRIDE (Go Lions!), pleasure, and a servant heart that I write this letter to formally introduce myself to the Whitesburg Family. I am so excited to be the newly appointed leader of Whitesburg Middle School, home of the Mighty Lions! I can hardly contain my excitement as I embark upon this new adventure. The Whitesburg community has embraced me with open arms, and for that I am forever thankful. I look forward to working with the students, faculty, staff, and community in which I will serve for the upcoming school year.

I am Dr. Linda Burruss, a wife of 22 years, mother of two wonderful children, a Christian, and an educator beginning my 23rd year. My career began at Lee High School in 1997 as a science teacher and I continued there for 14 years. It has been an awesome and amazing ride. I have had the pleasure of serving students, teachers, and communities in various capacities from elementary to high school and at the district level. I also served as the Huntsville Education Associate President for two years. It is important to know that WE will work together and grow as a team to carry out the many traditions that currently exist while also creating new ones. Furthermore, we will continue the path to create a culture of academic excellence.
