WESTPORT, Conn. -

Dona Young, a West Virginia resident who is the former chief executive officer of the Phoenix Companies, has been elected to Save the Children's board of trustees.

Thirty-four people serve on the board of the global humanitarian and relief organization dedicated to lasting change for children in need in the United States and around the world.

Young, who lives in White Sulphur Springs, retired in 2008 after nearly 30 years with Phoenix, an insurance and asset management company. She was among the first women to serve as general counsel of a financial services company. 

Young earned a bachelor's degree and a master's degree from Drew University in Madison, N.J., and her law degree from the University of Connecticut School of Law. She has received distinguished alumni awards from both schools. She also was a 2012 Advanced Leadership Fellow at Harvard University.
