  • Dylan Young ’88

    “Bush was an overwhelmingly supportive and normal experience,” says Dylan Young ‘88. “This alone may seem a trite statement. However, I was a C7 quadriplegic back in the 1970s and ‘80s and people tell me having a normal experience was a remarkable thing. Kudos to Bush.”

    Dylan is living life. He has placed first or second at the national level in four different sports: wheelchair track, wheelchair rugby, masters rowing, and disabled sailing. “I was a founding employee of a company that went public on the NASDAQ, and today I am a personal trainer with a graphics design certificate,” says Dylan. “I serve my sailing club as an officer. I know how to cook. I am studying German, and I travel as much as I can.”

    “Certainly, I consider myself very fortunate,” says Dylan. “I think what I most assimilated from Bush is the virtue of having a well-balanced life. I can be focused, but I do not let any one thing dictate or define my life. I feel everything should be given a finite amount of time. I enjoy the creativity found in doing things well but efficiently. And hence I enjoy the down time this creates. This philosophy frees me up to consider my next move and tackle the next thing.

    “I did not expect all of these achievements. I believe it is a message of Bush to do many things and not focus solely on academics. I will often press on through mediocrity based on a feeling that I simply belong there. In answering these questions I have conjured a Bush motto: Every effort is worthy of some praise. Maybe this motto will be obtuse to many, but it reflects the memory of my Bush experience. The motto gives you the confidence to try new things and the positive vibes to carry on in good or bad experiences.”
