Abigail Ann Hornbuckle, daughter of Tim and Brenna Hornbuckle, was selected to receive the 2017-2018 Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Award (HOBY).
Hornbuckle will represent Siloam Springs High School at the HOBY Leadership Seminar on the campus of Arkansas Tech University on June 7 through 10.
HOBY Leadership was established in 1958 by the popular actor Hugh O'Brian following a visit to Africa where he was inspired by a meeting with Dr. Albert Schweitzer.
HOBY Leadership Seminars bring together a select group of high school sophomores from public and private high schools to interact with groups of distinguished leaders in business, government, education and the professions to discuss present and future issues. The goal is to provide the youths a stimulating forum for learning about critical issues while broadening their understanding of their leadership potential. HOBY Ambassadors learn how to think rather than what to think.
Blaise Becan, son of Samuel and Carol Becan, was selected as the 2017-2018 HOBY alternate for Siloam Springs High School.General News on 11/29/2017
