This year, Emmaus High School has 3 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 Julia Marks, Grace Comfort and Alexia Stephanides. These students will be attending the weekend-long seminar at Albright College in June. The students chosen to represent Emmaus High School will expand their knowledge base while exhibiting the five core values: 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!
