Dr. Lyle Young
Lyle Young, supervisor of student teacher and resident year teachers at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, recently was recognized for serving 47 years in the field of education by being inducted into the Oklahoma Educators Hall of Fame.
Since 2002, he has been assisting student teachers at Northwestern. Most of Young’s years in education were spent at Tulsa Public Schools as a teacher, counselor, principal and district administrator. From 1995 to 2001, he served as superintendent of Stillwater Public Schools.
He also has helped administer the National Assessment of Educational Progress in Oklahoma as an assessment coordinator since 2003.
His honors include Administrator of the Year from the Oklahoma Association for Secondary School Principals.
He also was named Administrator of the Year from the Oklahoma Association for Secondary School Principals, and received the Gold Medal for Excellence in Education Leadership Award that was presented by the University Council for Educational Administration.
"I am truly proud to be recognized as one who has exemplified a commitment to quality public education as past inductees have done," Young said. "I am humbled by the award, and I hope that I have done all that I could for the students and staff in the schools where I have served."
Inductees were honored at a formal ceremony and banquet on Aug. 27 at Quail Creek Country Club. Their portraits will be added into the Hall of Fame, which are displayed at the Oliver Hodge Education Building on the campus of the state Capitol.
