Caballero attends HOBY
Jessica Caballero recently attended the Hugh O'Brian Youth
Leadership (HOBY) Annual Leadership Seminar in El Paso. She
joined more than 60 other young leaders representing as many
high schools throughout Texas on May 29-31.
Representing Pecos, Jessica is the daughter of Virginia
Caballero. The Evening Optimist Club was the local HOBY
For the past 40 years, HOBY Leadership Seminars have brought
together select groups of high school sophomores who have
demonstrated leadership abilities in their high schools and
communities so they can 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 students with a stimulating forum for
learning about the American incentive system and democratic
process and for broadening their understanding of their
leadership potential and quest for self-development.
"The HOBY seminar challenged me to think about the many
issues affecting the world around me and helped me
understand that as a leader, I have the power to make a
positive impact in business, government and society," said
Caballero. "HOBY helped me see the leadership potential in
myself and to understand that goals and dreams are important
regardless of what profession I choose."
HOBY was established by veteran 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 the most
important thing in education was to teach young people to
think for themselves," O'Brian said. "From that inspiration,
and with the support of others who believe in youth and the
American dream, I started HOBY."
Further information about HOBY activities and sponsorship
opportunities is available by calling Hugh O'Brian Youth
Leadership at 1-800-929-HOBY (4629) or visiting their web
