For more than 50 years HOBY has been known as the country’s top youth leadership development organization.
Records indicate that at least since 1986, Miller High School has been sending sophomores as delegates to HOBY. Cassie Beckett and Lexy Gimbel have been selected as this year’s delegates, with Sylvia Wieseler as alternate.
Founded in 1958 by veteran actor Hugh O’Brian, HOBY’s mission is to provide lifelong leadership development opportunities that empower individuals to achieve their highest potential. O’Brian set out to help young people make a difference and become positive catalysts for change—in the home, school, workplace and community. Now, with more than 375,000 alumni leading the way, HOBY is respected worldwide for its youth leadership programs.
HOBY programs are conducted annually throughout the United States, serving local and international high school students. To get involved as a student, school, parent, alumna/us, volunteer or supporter, visit http://www.hoby.org/.
