Last year’s attendees, juniors Isabelle Braun and Connor Olson, will give a brief presentation about their HOBY experience at the meeting.

Two members of the current sophomore class—one boy and one girl—will be chosen to attend based on a written summary detailing why they feel they are deserving of the opportunity.
