JENNIFER A. YOUNG MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
HELPING OTHERS REACH THEIR LIFE GOALS
The Jennifer A. Young Memorial Scholarship was established in memory and honor of Jennifer Young, dedicated teacher, department chair and president of the Worthington Education Association. She retired as an Assistant Principal at Worthington Kilbourne High School in 2002. She also was a leader in the OSU Graduate Principal Development Program.
Now that she has completed her degree, Drake is looking forward to giving back to Charlotte County.
“I am looking forward to supporting students on a larger scale, as well as influencing teachers to lead in the same way that I have been led,” she said. “I have had many opportunities in the community to observe, collaborate with, and shadow many amazing teachers. We are truly blessed to have exceptional teachers, administration, and support staff in this community.
“My aspirations at this time are to continue to educate myself and others on their important influence on students and families. A few years ago, I would have never expected to finish my Master’s Degree, and the Community Foundation helped me with this amazing opportunity.”
