DAHS Names Two HOBY Award Winners

November 13, 2017

DAHS Names Two HOBY Award Winners - image001Division Avenue has selected two students from an outstanding sophomore class to represent the school at the Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Seminar at Adelphi University in June 2018. HOBY's mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. Students were nominated by faculty members and asked to apply for the prestigious recognition by writing an essay describing their leadership experience and potential. The selection committee reviewed each essay and selected finalists to move on to the interview process. The interview process narrowed the field to our five exceptional HOBY representatives for the 2017-2018 school year.

The students will participate in a three day leadership seminar which, as described by the organization, is "designed to help high school sophomores recognize their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their home, school, workplace and community. Students will explore their own personal skills while learning how to lead others and make a positive impact on their community."
