Truman R. Young, Jr.
Truman R. Young, Jr., was a former Air Force Academy graduate and decorated combat pilot selected to participate in a series of internships sponsored by the State Bar of Arizona. These internships were designed to encourage highly qualified and motivated law students to become career prosecutors. During his internships and subsequent career as a prosecutor, Young exemplified the qualities that the public expects of its advocates.
On March 13, 1982, Young was killed in a mid-air collision while serving his country, piloting a National Guard airplane. In memory of Young and in tribute to him, his friends, and colleagues in conjunction with the
Arizona Prosecuting Attorney’s Advisory Council (APAAC)
and the College of Law at Arizona State University, established the Truman R. Young, Jr. Prosecutorial Fellowship.
The fellowship is designed to annually offer one third- year law student the opportunity to participate in the type of internship program Young found so rewarding.
The program is sponsored by the Arizona Prosecuting Attorneys’ Advisory Council and administered by the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.
