Mrs. Linda Escott recently retired from Gateway and all of her friends and Gateway family helped throw her the best farewell party we could!
Mrs. Escott was employed with Gateway for a total of 15 years. She started out in our Consumer Credit Counseling Department and moved to FCB in 2001 which program she was working in when she retired. She won Employee of the Year in 2004 (last year Gateway did anything like that). Linda initially retired from UAB prior to coming to work for Gateway.
She earned a reputation for her thoroughness in her job tasks, her kindness and her ability to reach out to clients and staff across the agency and social economic status.
Linda has two sons, Jesse and Jarvis. Both sons remarked that Linda didn't retire, God retired her. She has quickly adapted to retirement, picking up in other areas of her life investing in the lives of children and teenagers in her community and through her church.
We know she is on to bigger and better things, but she surely will be missed!
