*******************************Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership, or HOBY***********************

If you are unfamiliar with HOBY: it is a four-day leadership seminar for high school sophomores, where we believe that if you empower and lead, you will excel. The seminar includes motivational speakers, highly interactive panels, and focuses on service in the community. Students have the opportunity to meet over 200 involved sophomores just like them from all around the state. They will grow their leadership skills, learn more about themselves, and get motivated to be a key leader in your school and community. This year’s seminar will be held at Kansas State University May 31st- June 43d, 2018. If you would like to see more about what HOBY is, please watch this short video.

If you have not received your packet, you can download the packet at www.kansashoby.org. Here you will need your School ID and Password (Contact Ms. Paden for this)

I want to inform you that this year’s priority deadline is December 8th. Last year, we were 90% full by this date, and were 100% full, with a waiting list, by Christmas break. I would really love to see a sophomore from your school participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity, so please register as soon as you can to guarantee a spot.

The cost to attend is $225 per student and it must be paid by April 1st, 2018, or the school will forfeit their spot.  The parents of the student ambassador can submit the fee.

I would love to hear back from you if you are considering sending a sophomore from your school. Thank you for taking the time to consider HOBY.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, or you may also contact our Director of Registration and Recruitment, Derick Holmes, whose information is listed below.
