This year, Emmaus High School has six sophomores scheduled to attend the Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) State Leadership Seminar. Each spring, 10,000 high school sophomores from across the country join one of 70 State Leadership Seminars to recognize their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their home, school, workplace and community. HOBY’s flagship program, the State Leadership Seminar, empowers high school sophomores to develop their leadership talents to become the leaders of their community. The seminar curriculum is based on the Social Change Model of Leadership and develops leadership from three perspectives: Personal Leadership, Group Leadership, and Leadership for Society.
Congratulations to Kameryn Kozemko, Emily Wainwright, Arianna Werner, Nicholas Luey, Nathaniel Wertz, and Demetrius Stephanides. These students will be attending the weekend-long seminar at either Shippensburg University in May or Albright College in June. They will exhibit the five core values, which include: volunteerism, integrity, excellence, diversity and community partnership. We are so excited for these students to experience this fabulous opportunity and make connections across the state. We truly believe the HOBY experience will motivate and influence their future; in turn, it will help them become the best version of themselves. We hope they return empowered to become leaders in both our local and global community!
