The MCC residence hall complex is named for Dr. Alice Holloway Young.
Dr. Young joined the Rochester City School District in 1952, and was one of the first African-American teachers. Over the next three decades, she taught at the elementary school level, administered entire schools and implemented a variety of district-wide programs that transformed Rochester’s educational character and commitment. Named a Monroe Community College trustee in 1961, Dr. Young helped establish the college and its vision. Her involvement and commitment to Monroe Community College has transcended four decades as a founding trustee, Board Chair and Chair Emerita. Throughout her career, she has received numerous honors. It is most fitting that this trailblazing educator be honored for her years of dedicated and inspiring service to Monroe Community College.
