Meet Our New Colleagues

Ralph Young

Ralph Young is prepared for his challenging new position as the Westside Native American Outreach Coordinator for Thurston County Extension that started in September 2008. Although he just earned his BS in physical sciences at WSU this past May, Ralph is not new to using his education and initiative to get involved with bettering his community. While still a student he worked for the USDA Agricultural Research Service in Pullman and traveled to the Colville Reservation to help with biofuels projects and science education. USDA plant pathologist David Weller calls Ralph a “tremendous role model” that brings passion to teaching tribal youth.

In Ralph’s own words, he is “strongly committed to bringing math and science to rural/reservation schools in order to promote higher education [and] recruit future Cougs!” He also enjoys making dreamcatchers on occasion.
