    Most memorable CCAC Experience:
    In 2013 it was a pleasure to witness my mother, Margaret Young, graduate from CCAC with an Associate of Science Degree in Social Work at the age of 71.

    Why I teach what I teach:
    I continue to pursue what I am passionate about; assisting students in developing essential skills to be successful academically, personally and professionally.

    Something people might not know about me:
    I always wanted to be a teacher. Every mentor that inspired me was an educator. Initially I wanted to teach at the high school level. However, I developed an interest in higher education while serving in the capacity as Assistant Director of Admissions at Clarion University prior to arriving at CCAC.
