TALLAHASSEE - Gov. Jeb Bush named a Fort Myers woman to the state Board of Education, filling a vacancy that opened last fall when former aide Sally Bradshaw resigned.

Linda Taylor was a trustee for Edison Community College and its foundation board as well as vice chairwoman of the board of trustees at Florida Gulf Coast University. She resigned both positions to join the seven-member Board of Education.

Taylor earned a bachelor's degree in education from Ohio State University. She worked with businesses in Lee County to establish the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools and also established a program that recognized excellence in teaching.
