    About the Dr. Susan Young Memorial Scholarship Fund

    Dr. Susan Young

    Dr. Young became a literacy professor at Monmouth University in 1993. Susan was a department chair, served on numerous school and university committees, played a central role in program and course development, and conducted scholarly research. She was responsible for establishing many university/school partnerships, including the Ready-Set-Go preschool in Long Branch.

    Susan was an outstanding, motivating teacher. She lived and breathed the concept of lifelong professionalism and expected students to develop that disposition. During her career at Monmouth, we formed the Monmouth University Special Interest Council of the International Reading Association and developed the two annual School of Education symposiums to provide professional development opportunities for our students and area teachers.

    Susan was the consummate advocate and advisor to students. She assisted and counseled a great many of students in regards to their career paths. Students were always found either in her office or waiting in line to meet with her about courses, programs, teaching, and activities. She served as the faculty advisor to Kappa Delta Pi. In December 2003, Susan, after a brave, courageous fight, died from ALS. Susan is sadly missed by the Monmouth University community and is fondly remembered for her scholarship, exemplary teaching, and outstanding service contributions to the School of Education, Monmouth University, the community, and the field of education.
