Jenny Leffler on Julianne Puente '91

What I loved most about working with Julianne was her passion and the way it spread like wildfire.
It didn’t matter if we were creating Halloween costumes for our respective teams for the costume contest; or preparing a ribbon cutting and celebration for the Middle Schooler’s first day in the new building; or working through a difficult student issue, Julianne’s passion and spirit made every single hour feel so important and so worthwhile because you knew that those hours would turn into an amazing experience for whoever was lucky enough to be involved.

You can’t “learn” heart and passion, it has to be inside of you, and that is something that remains at the heart of who Julianne is.
