The Ridgeway Baptist Church Sunday School will celebrate Black History Month with a special program each Sunday during the month of February. The presenter for this Sunday, at 12:10 p.m., will be Linda T. Worth.

A native of Warren County who was educated in the Warren County Public School system, Worth holds an A.A.S. degree in business administration from Vance-Granville Community College, a B.S. degree in business administration from Shaw University, and a master of public administration degree from North Carolina Central University.

She has worked the last 28 years in the public sector. From 1985 to 1993, she was clerk to the Warren County Board of Commissioners and assistant to the county manager. Leaving county government in 1993, she joined the staff of the Honorable Eva M. Clayton as a congressional aid. She held that position until the spring of 2000 when she returned to Warren County government to assume the position of tax assessor. In August of 2005, the Warren County Board of Commissioners appointed Linda, interim county manager, a post she held in addition to the tax assessor position until being appointed permanent Warren County Manager in November 2005.

Worth’s professional committee affiliations and organizational memberships are numerous. In addition, she stays active in the community and at Spring Green Missionary Baptist Church, where she serves as chairperson of the Trustee Board.

Married to Charles J. Worth, they reside in Norlina.

The church is located at 156 Wycoff Road, Ridgeway.
