Amherst Bulletin: 'Senior Center Angel': Amherst College student excels at connecting generations

Bessie Young ’11 was the subject of this glowing feature in the local newspaper that focused on her service to the Amherst Senior Center. “Each year we have 50 students that we supervise,” commented the organization’s director, Nancy Pagano. “In my 38 years here I have never seen a student leader who, through her public service, has made such a varied and long-term significant difference to our elder and college community and endeared herself to so many.”
