HOBY Application for Sophomores

HOBY is the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership organization which offers a 3 day sophomore leadership seminar. The program will take place at Bentley University June 15, 16, and 17th. The program doesn’t have a specific vision of what a leader looks like – you might be a quiet person who leads by example, or a person who leads by embracing your wonderful self regardless of what your peers think, or you could be the type of leader who is Captain of this and President of that! The definition of leader is BROAD!

At the seminar, you will have the opportunity to meet hundreds of students from across the state and explore what it means to be a leader and what it means to lead by making the world a better place. To learn more about the HOBY Leadership Seminars, click HERE.

If this is an experience that might be of interest to you as a Holliston High School sophomore, please apply! The application process is outlined below:

We ask any interested sophomores to answer the questions listed in FlipGrid by December 1, 2017. You have 1 minute and 30 seconds to record a video answer for each of the following questions:

  1. Define what leadership means to you.
  2. Why is good leadership important in our society?
  3. Describe a leader you admire in the community or at the high school and why you admire this person.
  4. Describe a time when you have been a minority of one. (Or… If you haven’t had this experience, imagine how you would handle it and share your thoughts.)
