Last weekend, I had the honor to represent Dickinson High School at the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Conference at Texas A&M University in Galveston. 

Mr. O’Brian, an actor from the 1950s, founded HOBY after he spent nine days in Africa with Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Albert Schweitzer helping care for the sick and the poor. This experience impacted Mr. O’Brian’s life so much that when he returned back to the states, his goal was to help positively impact local youth, which developed into the HOBY mission, “To inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation.”
