We are SO excited to welcome Skylar Thorne Kelly to the HOBY Maine 2014 team! Skylar brings extraordinary talent in telling stories and will be helping us tell our HOBY Maine story through his photos and video. Working behind the scenes he will capture the outstanding transformations that happen throughout our seminar weekend.
Skylar is a jack of all trades. Most of his days and weeks vary between photography and video production, but sometimes he dabbles in carpentry, landscaping and heavy equipment operation. He reads lots of science fiction, history and picture books.
Skylar is looking forward to HOBY because, in his own words: "HOBY represents an opportunity to connect with a younger generation and reflect on their experience of 21st century America. I want to know what challenges young people face today and how they are adapting to excel in their environment."
His favorite leadership quote is from Thomas Jefferson: "In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock."
Please join me in welcoming Skylar to the HOBY Maine team!
