We are very pleased to announce that Jerry Edwards has stepped up as our 2014 Director of Program. Jerry has volunteered with HOBY Maine for three years as a Senior Facilitator and was looking for a new challenge. Jerry has a passion for curriculum development and together with the rest of the curriculum development team has worked tirelessly for the last several months fine tuning the 2014 HOBY Maine program.
Jerry is on the Business Team at the Apple Store at the Maine Mall, partner at Axion Studios (a recording studio and artist development company) and father to two outstanding kids, Jaylen and Makayla.
When asked why he volunteers with HOBY Maine, Jerry said: "It fills up my emotional buckets - to overflow! I love the opportunity to impact young leaders, and help them to maximize their skills. i want to make an impact, by helping others make an impact."
Jerry's passion for music and leadership likely influenced his choice of leadership quote:
