Featured Alumna: Mackenzie McCloud '12
My name is MacKenzie McCloud and I am a junior currently attending Hampton University where I am studying nursing. I attended Hugh O’Brian Youth Program the summer of 2012 and retuned the summer of 2013 as a junior staff member. Being selected to represent my high school at HOBY became one of the major defining moments in the development of the young woman I am today. The leadership skills, networking, and friendships that I developed and experienced during my summers with HOBY has given me the confidence to challenge myself and not steer away from leadership roles. Since my attendance I have received multiple awards from Health Occupational Students of America in Epidemiology, became a member of the Freddye T. Davy Honors College, and selected to be a part of Hampton University’s Student Recruitment Team. These are a few highlights since my summers with HOBY. I encourage every student who is presented with the opportunity to attend the summer program to go. It will take you out of your comfort zone and it will cause to think. But that’s what leaders do. We push ourselves, we make opportunities for ourselves, and we give back. Hugh O’Brian Youth Program will give you the tools needed to become leader on whatever path you choose to take in life.
