Calling all sophomores! Are you interested in attending HOBY (Hugh O'Brian Youth) State Leadership Seminar?

Students attend three-or four-day seminars and participate in hands-on leadership activities, meet leaders in their state, and explore their own personal leadership skills while learning how to make a positive impact in their community. Interested students are encouraged to learn more by visiting HOBY.org/lead and then see Mrs. Chladny for more details on the selection process. One to two students will be chosen to represent Williamsville High School. All seminar fees are covered by the school. Deadline to apply with Mrs Chladny is November 15.
