Jay Honors Former Town Clerk By Renaming Community Center

June 20, 2018

Tuesday evening, the Jay Community Center was renamed the Linda Carden Community Center in honor of longtime town clerk Linda Carden.

Carden retired after serving the community for 40 years. She started working for the Town of Jay in 1976 as the assistant to Town Clerk Theda Bray. She worked under three mayors – J.D. Bray, Jackie Ard and Kurvin Qualls.

While serving as town clerk, Carden earned the Master Municipal Clerk designation from the International Institute of Municipal Clerks. She retired in October 2016.
