Inspiring, Educational, Compassionate, Energizing, Enthusiastic, Motivating, Transforming, Long-Lasting, and Life-Changing
These are some of the words that students, schools, parents, alumni, volunteers and supporters use to describe Hugh OBrian Youth Leadership (HOBY). Founded in 1958, HOBYs mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. HOBY programs are conducted annually throughout the United States, serving local and international high school students.
HOBY programs provide youth selected by their schools to participate in unique leadership training, service-learning and motivation-building experiences. Today, over 375,000 proud alumni make HOBY stronger than ever. HOBY alumni are leaders in their schools and communities, throughout the United States and the world, making a difference for others through service.
The Home Representative Club, who has sponsored this program for over 20 years, is excited to announce the winner of this year's HOBY Leadership Award. Baylee Eigenheer, the 15 year old daughter of Matt and Julie Eigenheer, is this year's winner which means she is the outstanding sophomore for the class of 2015. Baylee has shown amazing leadership potential. For her admirable qualities, Baylee has won an all expense paid weekend leadership retreat provided by the Home Representative Club of Collinsville. This leadership retreat will be held at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond. Baylee will learn from some of the top business leaders in the State.
Baylee will have the opportunity to explore her personal leadership potential, group leadership dynamics and leadership in society. She will also participate in a hands on community service project during her weekend stay. Baylee will be encouraged to develop critical thinking skills and be given the opportunity to ask pertinent questions of today's leaders so she can emerge as one of tomorrow's leaders.
Baylee will also be presented with a plaque at the Collinsville High School Awards Assembly in May. On behalf of the Home Representative Club, congratulations to Baylee Eigenheer, Outstanding Sophomore.
