Local Students To Participate In Youth Seminar

Kathryn Friesen, Archbold High School, and Lauren Bontrager and Kendahl Baer, both of Pettisville High School, will attend the Ohio-West Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership seminar, May 15-18, at the University of Findlay.

They join more than 190 other young leaders representing high schools from throughout western Ohio.

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 provide a stimulating forum for learning about critical issues while broadening the students’ understanding of their leadership potential and quest for self-development.

They are challenged to return to their communities to perform at least 100 hours of community service within 12 months.
