Meet Linda Scribner-Lemmons

Lead Counselor

Linda Scribner-Lemmons is the lead counselor at Oklahoma Connections Academy (OKCA). She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology and her master’s in applied behavioral science at Oklahoma State University. Ms. Scribner-Lemmons has been with OKCA since 2015 and has been working in education since 1982.

Before becoming a counselor, she started her career as a teacher. She says, “My parents had a strong influence on me becoming a teacher. My father taught his children from an early age that the one thing that can’t be taken away from you is your education. Both my parents instilled in us the importance of education. I have always loved working with children, so becoming a teacher was a natural fit.”

Ms. Scribner-Lemmons’s experience as a teacher and counselor helps her counsel students to meet their maximum potential at OKCA. “The rigorous curriculum and highly qualified staff ensure that our graduates are prepared for whatever career path they choose. Our faculty are supportive to parents, students, and staff.” Ms. Scribner-Lemmons believes communication is the key to success, and she loves to support and hear from OKCA students.

In her free time, Ms. Scribner-Lemmons likes to spend time with her husband and son, who have a sprint car team and who race from March to October. She also enjoys taking walks, reading, and riding Sea-Doo watercraft.
