From the Office of President Elfred Anthony Pinkard

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of the Right Reverend McKinley Young, Senior Bishop in the AME Church and Chancellor of the Wilberforce University Board of Trustees.

Bishop Young dearly and fiercely loved and supported Wilberforce University and leaves a noteworthy legacy of tireless work on behalf of the University.

Bishop Young was the spiritual and moral voice for the Board of Trustees and served selflessly for the past seven years. His presence, kindness, intelligence, leadership, and grace will be deeply missed.

Homegoing services for Bishop Young have not yet been announced. Please keep his wife,
Dr. Dorothy Jackson Young, and the entire Young family in your prayers.

Suo Marte,

Elfred Anthony Pinkard
22nd President
