Saul Woodworth, Joseph Day and Sarah Newman have been chosen as the 2019-2020 Hugh O'Brien Youth Leaders for Meyers High School and Wilkes Barre Area STEM Academy. They will join over 250 sophomore students across the state of Pennsylvania for a leadership seminar at Shippensburg University, May 14-17 2020. This annual HOBY event unites students with community leaders, business executives and educators with the goal of fostering teamwork, developing critical-thinking skills and building connections. HOBY is successful in equipping today's youth with the necessary skills to confront the challenges of tomorrow. HOBY's mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation.
Last year, Tio Marello and Patrick Franckewicz attended; the year prior, Michael Grebeck not only attended HOBY at Shippensburg, but was also nominated to attend the National Conference in Chicago.
