"Climbing a mountain gives you a chance to see your own life in a different perspective," Young said in his "last lecture." "The peak of a mountain enables you to see for miles around. It allows you to see what really is important in your life."

A celebration honoring Dr. Young will be held during Homecoming Weekend at 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15, in the Kresge Theater.
