At a celebration held Tuesday night, May 7, 2013, the Buffalo Trace Council, Boy Scouts of America, recognized Linda White, President and CEO of Deaconess Health System, with the Distinguished Citizen Award.

A few of these scout traits include being trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, brave, and reverent. As the CEO of Deaconess, Linda White has exemplified these characteristics in the hospital as well as the Evansville community.
