Dr. Alice Holloway Young Faculty Internship Program
Dr. Alice Holloway Young has had a profound impact on education in Rochester and Monroe County for over fifty years. As a founding trustee of Monroe Community College, and as its chair from 1978 to 1998, she shaped the direction of the college and provided leadership that saw MCC become the premier institution it is today. As an African-American educator in the Rochester City Schools for four decades, Dr. Young was a pioneer. She was among the first African-American teachers, and the first African-American to hold the titles of reading specialist, vice principal, and principal. When Dr. Young retired in 1985, she held the position of supervising director of elementary instruction.
