In Memory of Linda Slick

December 30, 1947 - June 24, 2007

Linda Slick was born in Cascade, Idaho and spent her childhood in Seattle, Poulsbo and Chehalis.  She graduated from CWU, began teaching in Union Gap and them moved to Kennewick and began teaching at Kamiakin in 1974.  Linda taught at Kamiakin for 27 years.  She retired in 2001. 

“Slick” is remembered for being tough with her students, having high expectations, and truly caring about their successes as if each student were her own child.   She made students think, to look beneath the surface, to question everything.

She always stood up for what she believed was right even when it wasn’t the easy road.  She saved a lot of students who may have been left behind without her influence.  Slick pushed us all to be the best we could be and let our Brave spirit shine.

Ms. Slick’s message to us can be summed up in the words of Scarlet and Gold written by Rick Vale…

“Good-bye, my friend, I love you, not a smile, not a tear, I go,
For now I see, what was given to me; the freedom to learn and to know.”
