As his high school’s winner of the 2019-2020 Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Award, sophomore Johnathan Yankus will represent East Islip at this year’s three-day HOBY New York Metro Leadership Seminar conference. It will be held from June 5-7 at Adelphi University in Garden City. The award honors exceptional leadership and community service.

HOBY is an annual leadership seminar open to sophomore students across America, providing more than 12,000 students the opportunity to spend an exciting weekend at various locations engaging in leadership development activities and seminars. Yankus will attend thanks to a donation from the Lions Club of the Islips, whose representatives Dennis Busch and Eugene Petraitis visited the school to present the student with a check and their congratulations.
