HOBY Representative

Font size: [A] [A] [A]

Founded by actor Hugh O'Brien, the Hugh O'Brien Youth (HOBY) leadership programs has grown since its early days as a regional award in the 1950s until it has become a global leadership seminar. Each program strives to follow the HOBY motto of teaching students, "how to think, not what to think."

Tenth-grader Jessica Bonacci will represent Mid Valley as a HOBY ambassador this year.

Bonacci is shown being congratulated by principal Chad Vinansky.
