Bainbridge High School sophomores Viviana “Vivi” Schuyler, Craig Speh and Madalyn Yancey have been selected to attend the 2019 Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) Summer Seminar to be held on the campus of Georgia College in Milledgeville on June 7-9th.  These three students were selected for this honor by competing with other BHS sophomores; first by nomination from school faculty, then by exemplary participation in a group interview process.

Founded in 1958, HOBY’s mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service, and innovation. 

Each spring, 10,000 high school sophomores from across the nation join one of HOBY’s 70 State Leadership Seminars to recognize their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their home, school, workplace and community.

Vivi, Craig and Madalyn shine among their peers as they demonstrate strong leadership potential and possess outstanding communication skills. They are also strong in the areas of critical thinking, creative problem solving, and decision making.  Furthermore, these students are sensitive and kind, are courageous to speak out and challenge others, and demonstrate dedication to community service.

Viviana is the daughter of Sean and Shanell Schuyler; Craig is the son of Craig M. Speh II and Wanda Speh; and Madalyn is the daughter of Barbara Spooner and the granddaughter of Eddie and Jean Adams.  All three sophomores excel academically as they are enrolled in Honors or Advanced Placement courses at BHS and/or Dual Enrollment classes through Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, Bainbridge location.

Bainbridge High School is proud of these three scholars and is expecting great things as they travel to Milledgeville this summer to join other young adults in this once-in-a-lifetime leadership opportunity.
