S. L. Young reunites with the principal (Gwen Felder) who prevented him from dropping out of high school 30 years ago on the Maggie Linton Show on 1/12/16.
Mr. Young and Ms. Felder share their experiences that helped him slowly transition from an at-risk student to an educator who tirelessly gives-back to at-risk communities.
This is an encouraging and uplifting interview about the importance of not giving-up on an at-risk student, caring about a student's personal development, and understanding that with a supportive environment an at-risk student can achieve academic success.
Information on Mr. Young's journey to overcome his educational challenges is detailed in his book "Above Expectations - an unlikely journey from almost failing high school to becoming a college professor".
