Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership

The Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Camp is a very well rounded experience for rising juniors.

Last year, Alcorn Central High School was able to send Tess Lancaster to represent the school. She learned some key information regarding interview skills, communication skills, and social responsibility. 

This year, Alcorn Central is elated to send Jacob Pearson as the HOBY Delegate from ACHS.

The program, developed by the late actor Hugh O'Brien, helps high school sophomores build their leadership potential through an inspiring three- or four-day Leadership Seminar based on three leadership perspectives: Personal, Group, and Societal. As many as 300 “ambassadors” from high schools across the state or country gather at their local HOBY State Leadership Seminar between April and June.

Jake will travel to Jackson, Mississippi where he will stay on the campus of Millsaps College for a weekend of leadership activities.
