May 29 – June 1: The Hugh O’Brien Youth Foundation’s Alabama Leadership Seminar will be conducted on the Troy Campus through June 1.
Modeled after HOBY’s World Leadership Congress, and part of the HOBY program, the seminar provides an opportunity to build on leadership skills already possessed by the student ambassadors. Students are nominated by their respective high schools and are chosen to attend based on emerging leadership ability, the ability to work well with others, a desire for new pursuits and a willingness to learn and share.
Students will hear from a wide variety of speakers on volunteerism, public and civic service and current events. They will also develop skits, write papers and meet with business and government leaders during the weekend.
