Show some words

Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Young, of Charlotte, N.C. Is a graduate of Elizabeth College, Charlotte, and of Smith, Northampton, Mass.; also of the National Training School, New York. She taught at Virginia College, Roanoke, Va., for two years, and was then elected one of the two Field Directors of the South Atlantic States for the Student Body of the Y. W. C. A. While filling this office the National Board of the Y. W. C. A. sent her to France as a war worker for the Red Cross nurses. Upon her arrival at Paris she was sent to Chaumont to take charge of the hut at the Compound over which General Pershing had charge. Her’s was a noble work, and a great compliment was paid her when, at a conference of the Board after the war was over, the Board said, “We could not have done without her.”

Miss Young spent a year in France, and upon her return, after the war was over, resumed her work as Student Body Secretary of the Y. W. C. A., with headquarters at Richmond, Va., which position she still holds.
