1/12/16 Interview: S. L. Young Reunites with the Principal Who Prevented Him From Dropping Out of High School
S. L. Young reunites with the principal (Gwen Felder) who prevented him from dropping out of high school 30 years ago on the Maggie Linton Show on 1/12/16.
Mr. Young and Ms. Felder share their experiences that helped him slowly transition from an at-risk student to an educator who tirelessly gives-back to at-risk communities.
This is an encouraging and uplifting interview about the importance of not giving-up on an at-risk student, caring about a student’s personal development, and understanding that with a supportive environment an at-risk student can achieve academic success.
Information on Mr. Young’s journey to overcome his educational challenges is detailed in his book “Above Expectations – an unlikely journey from almost failing high school to becoming a college professor“.
