I’ve been advertising and passing out applications to HOBY for the past two weeks and I’ve met a lot of great sophomores who are excited about developing their leadership skills. If you aren’t sure what HOBY is, here is a brief explanation from their website:
For five decades, Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) has worked diligently at helping young people make a difference and become positive catalysts for change—in the home, school, workplace and the community.
Students who attend HOBY are eligible to apply for HOBY Scholarships their senior year, and HOBY participation is great to add to your resume or list of leadership accomplishments. If you have any questions or need an application, please visit me (Mrs. Cartwright) in the Counseling Center.
