Congratulations to these Ray-Pec High School students nominated to attend the HOBY Leadership Seminar June 15-17 at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, Mo. From left: Jillian Humke (alternate), Taylor Hermsmeier, Dawn'Yel Iverson, and Emma Menzel.
The HOBY Missouri State Leadership Seminar is designed to help high school sophomores to recognize their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their home, school, workplace and community.
During the three-day seminar, students participate in hands-on leadership activities, meet leaders in their state, and explore their own personal leadership skills - all while learning how to lead others and make a positive impact in their community.
The high school pays the cost of the seminar for each student. Ray-Pec has sent at least one student to the HOBY seminar since 1986, with the exception of just a few years.
