Dr Linda Braddy, CEO
North Texas Red Cross
From the Red Cross Web Site:
"We respond to an emergency every 8 minutes.
No one else does this: not the government, not other charities. From small house fires to multi-state natural disasters, the American Red Cross goes wherever we’re needed, so people can have clean water, safe shelter and hot meals when they need them most.
  • We respond to an average of more than 60,000 disasters every year.
  • 95% of our disaster relief workers are volunteers.
  • The vast majority of disasters we respond to are home fires."
Dr. Linda Braddy joined the American Red Cross North Texas Region as its CEO in February of 2023. Linda served as the president of Dallas College Brookhaven Campus from 2019 to 2023, where she was responsible for leading initiatives which contribute to the vibrancy, growth, and economic stability of Dallas County. Among her responsibilities, Linda served as interim provost while helping Dallas College restructure to meet the needs of students and the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
