O’Brien, Raymond picked as HOBY ambassadors


VERGENNES — Every year, each high school in the United States may choose at least one sophomore to represent them at their state’s Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership (HOBY) Conference. This year, Vergennes Union High School’s HOBY Ambassadors are Avry O’Brien and Connor Raymond.

O’Brien and Raymond were nominated and selected for this honor based on their demonstrated and potential leadership skills and traits. The pair will attend the HOBY Conference on May 29-30. Due to the pandemic the conference will be held virtually this year. Ambassadors will participate in seminars and meet with leaders in the fields of education, government, and the professions to discuss present and future issues. O’Brien is the daughter of Andrew and Denise O’Brien of Ferrisburgh. Raymond is the son of Frank Raymond, Jr. of Addison and Rinda Stokes of Salisbury.
