Dylan Bradley, a sophomore at Jim Thorpe Area High School, has been selected to join 245 leaders representing many high schools from throughout central and northeast Pennsylvania at the Central Pennsylvania Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Seminar (HOBY) from May 19-22 at Millersville University.

Representing JTAHS, Dylan is the son of Raymond and Colleen Bradley of Jim Thorpe.

For the past 53 years, HOBY Leadership Seminars have brought together select groups of high school sophomores to interact with groups of distinguished leaders in business, government and education to discuss present and future issues in an enthusiastic learning environment.

HOBY was established by the veteran actor Hugh O'Brian following a visit to Africa where he was inspired by a meeting with Dr. Albert Schweitzer. Says O'Brian, "HOBY's goal is to seek out, recognize and develop outstanding leadership potential among our nation's youth."
