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.

In the fall of 2016, Norwich Tech faculty was asked to nominate 10th grade students that displayed leadership potential, to be invited to participate in an opportunity to become the Norwich Tech Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) Ambassador.  After being nominated, students were given the choice to write an essay to be scored to select the ambassador.  The Norwich Tech HOBY Ambassador will attend a weekend leadership conference in the spring paid for by the Norwich Tech Parent Faculty Organization.

ADVISORS: Krys Konow, Ed Hogan

The following students were recognized as Norwich Tech HOBY Nominees: John Coleman, Stephanie Rivera, Nathanael Padgett, Madison Webb, Edgardo Cruz, Julia Robert, Riley Riewerts, Marissa Madera, Ashlee Cardin, Alea Thigpen
