Averett University alumna is Congressman’s district director


Individuals who wish to work for the Federal government may have excellent job opportunities over the next several years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, holders of advanced degrees or certifications may have the best chances for employment.

In recent years, a graduate of Averett University in Virgina was chosen to U.S. Representative Robert Hurt's staff, the Star-Tribune reports. Linda Green, who is the former Dan River Business Development Center president, was selected to act as the Congressman's district director.

"Really, we are just an outreach for Congressman Hurt," she told the news source. "We want to make sure any concerns that are here locally are voiced to him in Washington."

As director, Green will oversee constituent services in the 5th District and scheduling for the congressman.

Green earned a bachelor's degree in accounting and management science with a minor in computer science from Averett University. Prior to her work with the Dan River Business Development Center, Green served as the president of the business incubator in Ringgold, Georgia, and as a quality engineer at Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company.
