Linda Odle has served in almost every capacity possible within the CEF organization over her many years of involvement. It’s no wonder that the children love her, as she was just a teenager when recruited from her church in Memphis to volunteer with CEF. She has been active in the organization ever since. In 1971 she moved to Knoxville after marrying Jim Odle, and shortly afterwards found herself once again volunteering to help spread the Gospel to children through the Good News Club, camps and training other volunteers. She started teaching using flannel graph, and coloring her own backgrounds before she could even drive. Now she uses better technology. As one of our longest serving volunteers, Linda sets a great example with her faithful service to children through CEF.
