Cobos attends leadership seminar
Joshua Cobos recently attended the Hugh O'Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership
Seminar that was held at the El Paso Community College Service Center, El
Paso, on April 25-27.
Cobos 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 Pecos High School, Cobos is the son of Felix and Pat Cobos.
The Pecos-Evening Optimist Club was Cobo's HOBY sponsor.
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 Seminar.
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.
