Faculty and Staff. Ruth Wilson. She began at BYH in 1947-48, and continued through early 1950s. She taught Home Economics. Ruth Wilson married J. Ira Young, who started at BY High in 1947-48 as Librarian. Ira has been deceased for some years. Ruth married Daren Curtis Young in 1949. They have six children. (See Ruth Wilson Young photo on Class of 1949 reunion page for 2003.) ~ ~ ~ ~ "During my college years of 1941-45, after teaching for two years in Nebo School District, I returned to BYH and BYU as a faculty member. A highlight at BY High was the slumber party for the high school girls. It was on the third floor of the Arts Building. Women faculty members chaperoned. Anna B. Hart, the lady-like English teacher, never had a hair out of place not matter how lively the party got. The girls, in their loudest sleepwear, spent a sleepless night eating and visiting. Some of the boys attempted to raid the slumber party by putting an extension ladder up to a window. Much to their surprise the face that greeted them at the top was that of the strict history teacher, Julia Caine. The boys rode a hasty retreat. Dallin Oaks, who was senior class president that year, was probably not one of the raiders. He worked evenings as a disk jockey at a local radio station." By Ruth Wilson Young, Provo [Provo Daily Herald Web Special, September 07, 2001] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Ruth Wilson Young was born April 15, 1923 in Payson, Utah, to Alfred Raymond Wilson and Emma Jane Bingham Wilson.

He graduated from BYU with a BS degree in Elementary Education in 1951. They made their first home in Provo, spent two years in Roosevelt, and thirty-eight years in Spanish Fork, returning to Provo in 1989. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Ruth held church positions from the time she was fifteen until the present. She enjoyed teaching children and youth. She served on stake boards for Sunday School, Primary, Young Women and Relief Society. She was also in several Relief Society presidencies and served as a volunteer with adoptions for LDS Family Services. She worked in several family history centers and was a regular temple patron. Always active in community groups, Ruth was president of several organizations - a federated club, an AAUW branch, the Spanish Fork PTA Council, and Daughters of Utah Pioneers on camp and county levels - and served as a voting district chairman, registration agent and election judge. As a leader of youth, she worked with Cub Scouting and 4-H Clubs. Daren C. and Ruth became the parents of six children.
