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.
