THROUGH OTH­ERS’ EYES

“Judge Zim­mer­man is a woman of sound prin­ci­ple. She is very pas­sion­ate about find­ing so­lu­tions that are fair and eq­ui­table, while main­tain­ing a fo­cus on ac­count­abil­ity. I think she is gen­uinely con­cerned for every young per­son who comes be­fore her, seek­ing the best sit­u­a­tion and out­come pos­si­ble for the longterm so­lu­tion. It is not an easy task, but Judge Zim­mer­man does not seek the easy so­lu­tion, only the best so­lu­tion.” — Mike Gil­bert, The Jones Trust C.O.O. “To do this job, it takes a very spe­cial per­son with a true call­ing and an in­nate pas­sion to make a dif­fer­ence in the lives of chil­dren and fam­i­lies. My fam­ily has sat in her court­room, and it is ob­vi­ous that she un­der­stands the grav­ity of th­ese sit­u­a­tions and the de­ci­sions that she is called to make each day. She knows the im­pact it will have on the young peo­ple and the fam­i­lies in­volved.”

— Kim Dut­ton, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor NWA Arkansas Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion
