The Riverview School Board of Directors recently presented the district's Community Service Award to realtors the Linnerooth Team, realtors Sue and Chris Linnerooth and Tracy Lewis. The award recognizes a business group's service to the Riverview School District and students.
The Linnerooth Team has donated more than $55,000 to Riverview schools and students in the past 13 years, pledging a percentage of all its commissions for the school. Eight years ago, Sue Linnerooth created the Rotary Club of Duvall youth program, providing scholarship funding for students, and the Student-of-the-Month recognition program.
"We are honored to be recognized by the school district that we love and respect," Sue said. "As children of educators we are strong supporters of public education... Our favorite donation was made after we sold the home of the district psychologist who requested our donation go toward purchasing technology equipment for a high functioning special needs student at Stillwater Elementary School. It warms our hearts to be able to make such an impact in the lives of the students in the Valley."
