City of Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris Recognizes Community Healthcare Leader, Linda Lawson, as Newest Community Contributor
During last night’s City Council meeting, Mayor R. Rex Parris honored Linda Lawson as the fourth recipient of the City’s Community Contributor award. Lawson, a long-time community healthcare leader, was recognized for her efforts to build a stronger, healthier Lancaster through her work with both Antelope Valley Hospital and Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley. The Community Contributors program is part of the City’s yearlong 40th anniversary celebration, and recognizes those who have invested years of service into the community.
“Linda Lawson’s ongoing work toward the improvement of healthcare services here in the Antelope Valley is commendable. Her selfless commitment to health and wellness has had a profound impact on our city, and its residents,” said City of Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “Linda has dedicated much of her life and career to this community, and we are grateful for all she has done to help foster a healthier Antelope Valley.”
Lawson began her career in healthcare as a registered nurse at Antelope Valley Hospital, and has since ascended to the role of Chief Administrative Officer for Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley, where she has served the community for nearly 13 years. She also served as a board member of both the Antelope Valley College Foundation and the local YMCA, where she worked to uphold the standards of higher education, in addition to healthcare, in the Antelope Valley.
Linda received an Associate of Science in registered nursing from Antelope Valley College, and went on to earn her Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences from Chapman University, as well as a Master of Science in Nursing from CSU Dominguez Hills.
