High school sophomore Liam Godbout has been named the winner of the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Award, honoring exceptional leadership and community service. He will represent East Islip at this year’s HOBY New York Metro Leadership Seminar conference, to be held in June.

HOBY is an annual leadership seminar open to sophomore students across America, providing more than 12,000 students the opportunity to engage in leadership development activities and seminars around the country.

As in previous years, the cost for East Islip’s winning student to attend the seminar will be covered by a donation from the Lions Club of the Islips, whose representatives Randy Nissan and Eugene Petraitis visited the school to present Godbout with a check and their congratulations.

“We thank the Lions Club for their generosity, and congratulate Liam on a job well done,” counselor Jennifer Salvaggio said.
