Alumni Testimonials

“I’m not the most emotional person ever. But this weekend has been one of the best of my life! I can’t believe it actually brought me to tears. I’ve met the most OUTSTANDING people, and I can’t even explain the way in which I’ve been changed…I was a doubter, but I’ve finally seen the importance of things I’d never realized before. Thank you HOBY for changing me for the better!”  – Bryeson Henry, ’15

“It’s been a year and a half since I went to the HOBY conference that changed my life for the better. I am very proud that the people I’ve met there, the future leaders of the world are doing amazing things. Whether it be leading community service events, excelling in academics/extracurriculars, or being accepted to colleges, these people are doing outstanding things! I’m especially proud that several 2013 alumni have been accepted into Ivy League schools!!! Wow! I also believe that I myself have grown as a leader and active citizen since HOBY, and owe many thanks to the speakers, counselors and fellow alumni for impacting my life!” – Marissa Carbonell, ’13

“HOBY was one of the most incredible experiences of my life so far, surrounding me with such a caliber of people that it is impossible not to strive for the stars.” – Michael Parker
