Orozco attends leadership program
Amanda Orozco recently attended the Hugh O'Brien Youth (HOBY) Leadership
Seminar that was held at the El Paso Community College Service Center in
El Paso, on April 25-27.
Orozco joined more than 55 other young leaders representing 55 high schools
from throughout the West Texas area. Only one outstanding sophomore from
each high school is selected by the school to attend the seminar.
Representing Balmorhea High School, Orozco is the daughter of Rafaela
and Armando Orozco of Balmorhea.
HOBY Leadership Seminars bring together a select group of high school
sophomores 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 stimulation forum for learning
about the American incentive system and democratic process while broadening
their understanding of their leadership potential and quest for self-development.
HOBY leaders are also challenged to return to their communities to perform
at least 100 hours of community service within 12 months following the Semnar.
Hugh O'Brian Youth 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.
"One of the things Schweitzer said to me was that the most important
thing in education was to teach young people to think for themselves," said
O'Brian. "From that inspiration, and with the support of others who believe
in youth and the American dream, I started HOBY to seek out, recognize and
develop leadership potential among our nation's youth," he said.
