Karin E. Young (M.A. HESP ’89) passed away suddenly on January 17, 2015. Karin and her family are members of the Terrapin family—her husband, Scott Young, has worked in Resident Life for 24 years, and they met on campus during graduate school. They have two daughters, both students at the University of Maryland. During her career, Karin was an audiologist at Johns Hopkins University.
To honor and remember Karin, her family has established The Karin E. Young Memorial Endowment for Hearing and Speech Sciences, which will provide scholarships for undergraduate students in Hearing and Speech Sciences who are interested in pursuing a career in audiology.
