2018 Yale Science & Engineering Association
Outstanding District Vice President
Milton Young, M.S. ’84
Since receiving a Chemical Engineering MS degree from Yale in 1985, Milton has cultivated an accomplished professional career at GM, ExxonMobil, Whirlpool, FMC and McCoy Global. The rich experience in supply chain, finance, R&D and project management gained at these companies, combined with his abundant energy and proven leadership skills have also benefitted his community and volunteer organizations like Asian Chamber of Commerce Houston and YSEA.
Over the past year, Milton has distinguished himself as YSEA’s South Central District Vice President, Chairman of the Industry Committee, and member of the Bylaws Committee and the Major Gift Planning Committee. He organized the Women in Engineering, Science and Technology event in Dallas Texas, attended by hundreds of middle school and grade school students in the Dallas metro area. Milton has also reinvigorated YSEA’s corporate membership program and worked jointly with the Office of Career Strategies to launch the 1st annual Yale STEM career fair last September with 31 companies & over 600 students in attendance.
Milton embodies what it means to “give back” and is an inspiration to all who strive to do the same.
