The Gift of Mortality | Linda Hugle | TEDxAshland

Linda Hugle graduated from high school at 16,
married her husband at 17 and became a mother at 18.
She also became a teacher and a high school principal.
She has been active in her community in every way,
fundraiser, board member and foundation trustee. She
has a new focus now, and you will see that Linda is the
embodiment of our event’s theme – Life & Death. Linda Hugle moved to Sams Valley during the 1970s back-to-the land movement with her husband Scott. They chose a remote
17-acre parcel with a single-wide mobile and no water. After a few
pathetic stabs at farming and with a menagerie of farm critters,
they found paradise on Evans Creek in Wimer in 1976. After sketching various floor plans on construction paper, they started building in 1977 and still live in their owner-built home.

Linda graduated from high school at 16, married Scott at 17, and became a mother at 18. She taught high school Social Studies and Spanish, always looking for more engaging ways to connect content, skills and kids. She later became an administrator and was a Special Education Director and high school principal. Linda has been active in her community most of her life as a volunteer, advocate, fundraiser, nonprofit board member, and foundation trustee. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
