Molly Daily and Aidan Crispin attended the HOBY Conference in Des Moines, Iowa. Here is Molly’s experience:
My experience at HOBY was truly unforgettable. From the start we did a ton of fun cheers that push you out of your comfort zone. Through the weekend (June 7-9) we did many team building exercises, listened to incredible speakers, and did a service project at Bidwell Food Shelter. HOBY taught me leadership and communication skills that I will always carry with me. My favorite part was definitely meeting new people and forming lifelong friendships.
