At Ellis, Ms. Young is a leader, mentor, and ally to students and families as she promotes a message of inclusion, tolerance, and acceptance.
Her efforts to build awareness and create positive change, on campus and in the community, empower and equip Ellis girls with the tools they need to have respectful dialogue and compassionate conversations in today’s diverse, global world.
