Division Avenue senior Christopher Smith was recently recognized by the Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership organization as a HOBY Academic All-Star. The distinction is given to HOBY alumni and volunteers who demonstrate outstanding academic achievements in the classroom.
To earn the HOBY Academic All-Star recognition, a student must be a senior in high school or in college. Also, they must have attended or volunteered at an official HOBY program in 2019 or earlier and have a cumulative weighted GPA of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Receiving the HOBY All-Star status can help students stand out among their peers during the college admission process and on job applications.?
