HOBY is an international organization that promotes leadership skills and networking in high school sophomores. Our vision is to motivate and empower individuals to make a positive difference within our global society through understanding and action, based on effective and compassionate leadership. HOBY’s success is the direct result of its 4,000 national volunteers who plan and execute its programs.

Each year, Norwich Tech reviews faculty and staff selected sophomore nominees to choose a HOBY Ambassador and an alternate. All nominees possess superior leadership potential. The Ambassador qualifies for a three-day series of workshops with business and industry leaders, which is sponsored by the Norwich Tech PFO. They also get to network with students from across the state.


The National Honor Society is an organization promoting recognition for students with outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership and service.
