“Knowing Lafayette so well, I’m ready to come back and help it reach the next level under the leadership of Chad Davis,” senior director of annual and leadership giving, says Young, a member of Posse who earned a bachelor’s degree with majors in film and media studies and women and gender studies. “I joke with everybody that my first day won’t be my first day. Being a Leopard and a member of the community never goes away.”
