Young served on the search committee to hire Executive Director Jill Boggs in 2015 and as secretary for three years.

She provided the historical knowledge that was needed during the chief executive leadership transition and gave 100 percent in her agreement to serve as a board member of our organization,” said Bob Jackson, chairperson of the board. “We can’t thank her enough for her service commitment, dedication to vision, and positive outlook.”
