Judy was a most wonderful student in our Counseling MA program, and later, a wonderful colleague. I am so sad to learn of her passing. She is most surely in my prayers.

So sad to hear of the passing of Ms. Linnett. Please know that she was greatly loved by the students at Magnet. My son Mateo always spoke highly of her. She was always so welcoming when I would go pick him up at school and we would chat a bit. My prayers are with her and her family. Thank you Ms. Linnett for your guidance with Mateo.
