When Joe Young put together his first Youngiefest celebration, it was a gathering of his former students who had gone on to become successful businessmen.

“When I talked to these men and realized what they have accomplished, it keyed something in my mind,” Young said. “Some students in schools today are bored with traditional school classroom instruction, just like some of the people in my classes.”

This year’s Youngiefest was held May 18 at Victor C. Talotta Park, Cementon.
