Rupp Attends Leadership Seminar

Jacob Rupp, Pettisville, recently attended the Ohio-West Hugh O'Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Seminar.

Rupp joined more than 190 other young leaders representing as many high schools from throughout northern and western Ohio, June 11-14 at Ohio Northern University.

HOBY Leadership Seminars bring together a select group of high school sophomores to interact with groups of distinguished leaders in business, government, education and the professions to discuss present and future issues.

The goal is to provide the youths a stimulating forum for learning about critical issues while broadening their understanding of their leadership potential and quest for self-development.

HOBY leaders are also challenged to return to their communities to perform at least 100 hours of community service within 12 months following the seminar.
