Western Wayne Sophomores Selected to Attend National Leadership Program


Rachel Carmody and Darryl James Swoyer, Jr. will represent Western Wayne as this year’s Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership representatives; they will join 250 leaders representing  many high schools from throughout central and northeast Pennsylvania at the Central Pennsylvania Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Seminar (HOBY) from May 16-19 at Shippensburg University.  Rachel is the daughter of William and Colleen Carmody of Waymart.  Darryl is the son of Darryl, Sr. and Sherry Swoyer of Lake Ariel.


HOBY was established by the veteran actor Hugh O’Brian following a visit to Africa where he was inspired by a meeting with Dr. Albert Schweitzer. Says O’Brian, “HOBY’s goal is to seek out, recognize, and develop outstanding leadership potential among our nation’s youth.”
