Dr. Charles Young said that “If you can find a profession that matches your values, then you’re in a good place.
”For more than three decades, Young was in a good place, with the last seven years being the Benicia Unified School District superintendent.
However, Young has decided to step away peacefully as he announced earlier in the month that he will be retiring after the end of the 2021-22 school year. Young has been the superintendent in Benicia since July of 2015. Young has also been the associate superintendent of Educational Services for the Palo Alto Unified School District.
