In Memoriam - Dr. Linda Castro Gainza
 
July 24, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our colleague, alumna, and 2019 Perry Award Recipient, Dr. Linda Castro Gainza. Dr. Castro was the Undersecretary of Logistics at the Department of Public Security of the State of Veracruz, Mexico and was also the first woman ever to receive a PhD in Defense and National Security from the Center for Higher Naval Studies (CESNAV). Throughout her career, Dr. Castro proved to be a successful and exemplary defense and security professional continuously displaying her commitment to developing transparent governance institutions and educating and strengthen institutional capacity in the Americas, most notably in Mexico. We send our condolences to Dr. Castro’s family and friends. May she rest in peace.
