Dr. Young's Story

With over 26 years of dedicated service in the field of education, I have honed my expertise and passion for guiding students on their journey towards college admissions. From my humble beginnings as a bilingual kindergarten teacher and elementary counselor, to my roles in district, federal, and state programs, I have continuously sought to empower students with the tools they need to succeed.

It was during my 15-year tenure as the lead high school counselor that I truly found my calling. Focused on helping students identify their unique strengths and gifts, I made it my mission to provide them with the necessary guidance to effectively navigate the college admissions process. Drawing from my own experiences of trial and error, including assisting my three sons, I developed a comprehensive five-step process that ensured each student would not only understand their innate talents, but also have a clear roadmap to achieve their life goals and dreams.

My extensive experience in the field, combined with my personal commitment to empowering students, has become the driving force behind my life’s goal. I firmly believe that every individual possesses incredible potential and deserves the opportunity to thrive in this world. My unwavering dedication to helping students uncover their unique gifts and talents, paired with a meticulously crafted roadmap to success, ensures that no dream is out of reach.

Congratulations Hattie!

Hattie will be attending Texas A&M University and majoring in Ecology Conservation Biology under the Forestry track with a minor in Spanish! 

What I loved about working with Hattie was her authentic desire to learn about the environment and opportunities to preserve it. She was highly motivated in spearheading several environmental initiatives in her school and community. She was bold and entered a university contest where she won first place for her project. She will be quite an asset to the Aggie community, and to the world! 

Here is her advice she wants to share with Current HS Juniors, “Some advice I would give to current juniors on how to prepare for the college application process is to avoid procrastination and make yourself known to the colleges you are interested in. Get a head – start on resumes/essays and participate in events that the colleges host so that they know your name!!

Clara's Advice

“I began my application very very early. That’s my biggest tip. Be ready to turn in the application early. I would also add to oversell yourself because nothing is assumed. The people that read your application know nothing about you (and the other thousands of people), so you need to stand out. I am so excited to go to the University of Texas for Business.”
