Yoon selected for leadership conference

Sophomore Elizabeth “Lizzie” Yoon has been selected to represent Wilton High School at the 2017 Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Seminar in Bridgeport this spring.

“Lizzie was selected for her strong volunteer participation and commitment to Wilton High and the greater Wilton community,” Superintendent Kevin Smith said at the Board of Education’s Dec. 8 meeting.

Elizabeth is a member of Wilton High School’s Model Congress Club and contributes to The Bulletin’s Warriors on the Issues student column.

She is also a member of the high school's track and field team and an artist, whose work was recognized by the Connecticut Art Education Association last year.

Lizzie will be one of 10,000 high school sophomores participating in nationwide HOBY State Leadership Seminars, which empower high school sophomores to develop their leadership talents to become leaders of their communities.

The Connecticut seminar will take place June 2-4, at the University of Bridgeport.
