Walter Young Appointed to the LVSC Board of Trustees

Mr. Young is a trained LVSC tutor and lifelong public servant.


A Ph.D. candidate in Public Safety Leadership, Walter has dedicated his life to public service. He spent 16 years in law enforcement elevating to the rank of police lieutenant with the Irvington Police Department. Walter also served as an Army Reservist combat medical specialist with the 74th Field Hospital in Orangeburg, New York. He has volunteered with Boy Scouts of America as a Cub Scout Committee Chairperson responsible for program development and facilitation and teaches public speaking to youth through New Jersey Orators.

Although new to the LVSC Board, Walter is no stranger to LVSC. Walter became a certified LVSC tutor in 2016.  He has worked with five different students, helping one student to prepare for a commercial driver’s license and another to land a job. In 2018 Walter was named Tutor of the Year for his work tutoring a small group of beginner-level students in Bound Brook. Helping LVSC has become a family affair for the Youngs, so Walter’s wife and children are frequently seen supporting and volunteering at LVSC events. 

LVSC board and staff members are grateful to Walter for his contributions and eagerly welcome him to the Board.
