HALEYVILLE - Tenth graders at Haleyville High School had the opportunity Tuesday, Dec. 1, to interview for a prestigious position that will help them in their future careers, with one student winning the chance to represent HHS on a national level.
Maegan McCullar was named this year's HOBY ambasssador for the school. First alternate was Lily Tinch, second alternate was Evelyn Kate Carroll, third alternate was Aynelise Vickery and fourth alternate was Anna Kate Bice.
Interview judges included the winners of HOBY for the past two years, Zeke Shipman and Sally Lakeman. Also serving on the panel were HHS Principal Davey Reed, Haleyville City Schools Director of Instructional Services Chere Fetter and HHS faculty member Tyler Malone.
HOBY, which stands for Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership, was founded in 1958 by actor Hugh O'Brian as a nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire a global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service, and innovation. Leadership seminars are held each year for those who win on the school level to represent their school on the national stage while learning key leadership skills that will help them throughout their lives.
