New Paltz Community Foundation Helps Support Josh Berry's Participation
in The Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Foundation

In June 2016, the New Paltz Community Foundation provided New Paltz High School junior, Joshua Berry, with $200 of support for his second trip to the Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Foundation (HOBY) seminar, held in Oneonta, New York.

Now in his senior year at New Paltz High, Josh says of his experience, "I attended the program in 2015, saw the impact it had on me, and decided to come back the next year as a Junior Staff member. Over both programs, I saw shy sophomores grow into leaders. Best of all, I saw them make lifelong friends sharing in the same goal of motivating and empowering others to create a positive difference in their own communities, through understanding and action, based on effective and compassionate leadership."

Josh has been accepted to Yale University for admission in the fall of 2017. Needless to say, we at the Foundation are proud of him and pleased to have offered our small sponsorship at HOBY.

The New Paltz Community Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization, so your donation is tax-deductible as allowed by law.
