25 YEARS AGO
Last Week Queen Anne’s County High School Principal William M. Young will become supervisor of county school facilities.
Thursday the school board unanimously approved the move to take place at the end of the school year.
Young, who began his career in Queen Anne’s County as a world history teacher about 30 years ago, said, “I’m 51 and zI’m still excited about things and I think I have something to offer. And the day I don’t think I have anymore to offer will be the day I walk out.”
He has been working at the high school since it opened in 1966. Of approximately 60 teachers at the high school then, only seven — including Young — are with the school system today.
As principal, Young is credited with creating recognition and self-esteem programs for students outside the regular curriculum.
