Linda Smith Honored at Black History Celebration
(HESPERIA, Calif.) Over 400 people are anticipated to come together on February 27 at 4 p.m., as part of the Third Annual Black History Celebration taking place at High Desert Seventh Day Adventist Church, 9875 7th Ave. Hesperia.
This year’s event will honor Linda Smith, founder and president of Four-D College, highlighting the theme “The Next Generation.” As part of this year’s message, the celebration will focus on educating families and providing them access to available information and resources for maintaining optimum health care.
“Throughout the evening we will recognize medical practices and organizations that support our community in the health care field,” said Barbara James, publisher of the High Desert Inland Valley News.
Smith, a registered nurse for 35 years, combined her love of nursing, high standards of health care professionalism and a deep spiritual faith as the founder of Four-D College. The institution has been recognized as the first and only African-American owned, fully accredited vocational career college in California, licensed to teach Vocational Nursing and other allied health care programs.
Four-D College continues to be acknowledged as an outstanding business by numerous agencies, while Smith has been featured in Essence Magazine and is a contributor to the book Creating Value through People: Discussions with Talent Leaders. In 2010 she published her first book Love Letters to the Lord, which will also be on display during the celebration.
In addition, legendary singer and actress Della Reese (CBS-Television’s Touched by an Angel) will be the 2011 celebrity honoree. Highlights of the program will include performances and entertainment by professional and local musical artists.
