Congratulations to sophomore Amy Chen, who has been chosen to represent Guilderland High School at the Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Conference this spring. GHS 10th grader Colin Ingraham will be attending the conference as an alternate, and Anjani Ramayanam will also represent Guilderland High School at the program.

Founded in 1958, HOBY’s mission is to inspire and develop a global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. HOBY programs provide students selected by their schools to participate in unique leadership training, service-learning and motivation-building experiences.
