Snyder selected to AHSAA Student Leadership program

Goshen junior Will Snyder is the latest Pike County student to have the honor of serving in the AHSAA Student Leadership program in March.

Snyder will be among 32 delegates to participate in the conference in Montgomery on March 3–4.

“It means so much to me being able to represent this area,” Snyder said. “I’m just so honored and proud to be able to do something like this.”

Goshen Principal Ken Britford said Snyder will make Goshen and the entire area proud.

“Will is a good kid; he’s a great guy,” Britford said. “He’s a hard-working student with great support from his family and the community as a whole.”

Will is the class representative on the GHS SGA and is also active in Jr. Beta Club, Future Business Leaders of America, Future Farmers of America, football, basketball, baseball, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and more.

Although the conference will mean missing some of his baseball seasons, Snyder said it is well worth it.

“My coach said it would be fine for me to miss practice or a game to represent our area,” Snyder said. “I think it’s worth it to have this opportunity.”

Outside of the classroom, Snyder is active as part of the Goshen Methodist Charge, attending Little Oak Methodist Church and being involved in the fall festival and Operation Christmas Child. He has also participated as a Salvation Army bell ringer, a volunteer for the Alabama Special Olympics, a participant in the Pike County Relay for Life and more.

Snyder said he is especially thankful for the support of his mom, Stephanie Snyder.

“She has really done a lot for me, helping me get to do everything and representing myself well,” Snyder said.
