Student selected to attend HOBY seminar

Justin Silverstrim has been selected to join 250 leaders representing many high schools from throughout Central and Northeast Pennsylvania at the Central Pennsylvania Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Seminar (HOBY) from May 16 through 19 at Shippensburg University.

For the past 55 years, HOBY Leadership Seminars have brought together select groups of high school sophomores to interact with groups of distinguished leaders in business, government and education to discuss present and future issues in an enthusiastic learning environment.

HOBY was established by the veteran actor Hugh O’Brian following a visit to Africa where he was inspired my a meeting with Dr. Albert Schweitzer.

O’Brian said, “HOBY’S goal is to seek out, recognize and develop outstanding leadership potential among our nation’s youth.”
