achieve­ments to her new­est role.

Li­censed in Mary­land, Delaware and Penn­syl­va­nia, McKin­non is con­sid­ered one of the area’s top res­i­den­tial sales pro­duc­ers and has grad­u­ate, Real­tor In­sti­tute and work­force hous­ing des­ig­na­tions. She was named the Real­tor of the Year by Ce­cil County Board of Real­tors in 2008 and 2015, as well as the 2015 and 2016 Mary­land State Real­tor of the Year. Just re­cently, McKin­non was in­ducted into the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Real­tors Omega Tau Rho So­ci­ety for her com­mit­ment to the real es­tate com­mu­nity.

McKin­non is also in­volved with sev­eral com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions ben­e­fit­ing chil­dren and vet­er­ans and their fam­i­lies, and serves on the board of the West Ce­cil Health Cen­ter. Upon grad­u­at­ing from the Mary­land As­so­ci­a­tion of Real­tors Lead­er­ship Academy in 2009, she re­ceived the pres­ti­gious W.H.C. Wil­son Award which is granted to the grad­u­ate who best demon­strates in­tegrity, a de­sire to lead and a high eth­i­cal stan­dard, both pro­fes­sion­ally and through com­mu­nity in­volve­ment. McKin­non has also chaired the Equal Op­por­tu­nity/Di­ver­sity Com­mit­tee for the Mary­land As­so­ci­a­tion of Real­tors since 2014.

McKin­non’s col­league of many years, Paul Wildey, in­tro­duced her as the new county board pres­i­dent at the Oc­to­ber cer­e­mony.

“There is an old say­ing that if you want some­thing done, ask a busy per­son,” Wildey said. “And Linda is one of the busiest peo­ple I know.”
