From the Troy Somerset Gazette (May 20, 2019)
After 24 years as principal at Troy College & Career High School in the Troy School District and 35 years in education, Linford, founding principal of the nontraditional school (formerly Niles Community High School), officially retires at the end of the month.

"In these 35 years, I have been on a wonderful journey. I never saw it as a job. It is a joy," Linford said. "It isn’t just the kids that I have connected with. I have worked with wonderful people in education. This is family, and it is going to be tough leaving. Our school has always had that small, personal, family essence." Linford said she estimates she keeps in contact with some 500 graduates, mostly through Facebook, and she has seen much growth in the program that she was hired to start in 1994. "We increased our student population during a time when other schools didn't. Open enrollment rapidly grew, and we added new teachers. We have a strong reputation, and many students have sought a Troy diploma. We were also one of the first alternative education programs to encourage dual enrollment which began around 2006 with Baker College and has expanded to our students attending Oakland Community College,” she said. Staff at TCCHS honored Linford at Senior Recognition night recently by establishing a Legacy Scholarship in her name. The first recipient was senior Diamond Marchant.
