25 YEARS AGO

Record Observer - - OPINION -

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.
