Alexis Good and Ross Gillian, students at Cape Henlopen High School, along with Alex Choy of Worcester Prep, recently attended the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Seminar held at Wesley College in Dover. They joined more than 65 other young high school leaders from the region.
Each spring, select area sophomores from public and private high schools convene at one of the 70 state leadership seminars across the country to recognize their leadership talents and apply them to becoming effective and ethical leaders. Student participants, known as HOBY Ambassadors, take part in hands-on activities, meet leaders in their state, and explore their own personal leadership skills while learning how to lead others and make positive impacts in their community. At the end of their seminars, HOBY Ambassadors are challenged to give back by serving at least 100 volunteer hours in their communities.
HOBY seminars have taken place in Delaware for 33 years. The seminars continue to inspire youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service, and innovation for one's country, state and communities.
