Corrine Youngs“I want Marian to grow and flourish. I want students to have the same amazing college experience that I had here.”

Corrine (Purvis) Youngs ’11 might have graduated in 2011, but she has not left Marian University behind. She volunteers as a coach for the speech and debate team before their state tournament each year, she judges the Regional Ethics Bowl Tournament that is annually held on campus, and she has served on the Marian University Alumni Board. She also consistently donates to the university, ensuring more students have the opportunities she has had.  

“My time at Marian developed me into a balanced individual, and along those same lines, fostered leadership,” Youngs said. “I want to give more students that opportunity.”  

After studying theology and communication at Marian, Youngs went on to law school, and now works as an attorney at the Bopp Law Firm, P.C. Her practices focuses on first amendment law, campaign finance law, election law, constitutional law, civil litigation, and appellate practice. She lives in Danville, Indiana, with her husband and labradoodle puppy. Outside of her professional work, she serves as vice chairman of the Hendricks County Young Republicans and cantors at Mary Queen of Peace Catholic Church. 

Thank you, Corrine, for giving of your time, talent, and treasure to your fellow Knights!
