The Linda A. Saiff Memorial Scholarship was established in 2016 by Robert Saiff in memory of his late wife Linda. She graduated from Watertown High School and received her Bachelor’s degree in teaching from Potsdam College. Following her education, Linda taught elementary school at Boon St. School, in Watertown, until she resigned to stay home and raise her children. She later returned to teaching as a substitute teacher until her retirement. Linda owned and operated her stained glass business called “The Glass Lass.” She provided instruction in stained glass at BOCES’ adult education program and provided supplies to stained glass enthusiasts through her business.
Linda was a member and registrar for the Daughters of the Revolution (DAR) and a member of the Ladies of the War of 1812.
