After reviewing several nominations from the public, The Rotary Club of Duvall selected Sue and her husband Chris Linnerooth, founders of the Linnerooth Team Realtors-Windermere, as Duvall Days grand marshals. They have made the company an institution for Realtor excellence and success throughout the Snoqualmie Valley.
Their reputations are stellar and they are beloved fixtures in our two communities (Duvall & Carnation). Though Chris is often behind the scenes, with Sue accepting more of a profile for the couple, the Linnerooths have routinely and frequently supported the Riverview School District through generous donations to all of our schools and have been substantial supporters of not only local PTSAs and the local arts community, but also the Riverview Education Foundation – supporting their efforts for nearly all of the organization’s 25 years of existence.
Sue is a fierce advocate for Duvall and knows both Duvall and Carnation, and the uniqueness held within each city, better than anyone. Recently, Sue completed a 5-month Ambassadors Program through the Riverview School District to continue to learn how the district operates, even after her two sons long-since graduated through Riverview, with the intent of passing that knowledge along to potential families looking to relocate to our area. Sue’s tireless devotion to the Rotary provides her a chance to serve as a liaison to our community as the leader of the Student of the Month program and together, Sue and Chris Linnerooth find ways both philanthropically and personally, to do anything and everything they can to make our days a little brighter and our community a little bit stronger.
