Five Saint Ursula Academy students participated in the 2017 Southwest Ohio Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Conference this June. HOBY is designed for high school sophomores to recognize their leadership talents and apply them in becoming effective, ethical leaders in their home, schools, workplace and community. The high level of energy, encouragement and motivation, as well as the interaction with peers, panelists and volunteers are important elements in nurturing the students’ future leadership roles. In addition, students participate in hands-on leadership activities and meet state leaders in such areas as business, government, education, media and the non-profit sector. Saint Ursula students are educated to be leaders, thinkers, nurturers, and prophets who inspire others to make a difference.
The participating HOBY students just completed their sophomore year. They are Madyson Wiley, Emma Foster, Lexi Kaiser, Edie Lynn and Elliana Bohan.
