Dr. Anne Austin Young was born in Cross Hill, South Carolina, and graduated from Presbyterian College as the school's first female valedictorian. She then went on to medical school, graduating with top honors, during the early 1900s when such an aspiration provided many obstacles for young women. Dr. Young would go on to become a leading OBGYN in Anderson, delivering 10,000 babies in her career.
