Maierhofer earns HOBY honor

Sophomore selected to represent SHS at seminar

SENECA — Kassidy Maierhofer, a Seneca High School sophomore, was selected to represent Seneca Township High School at the 2013 Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Seminar.

The leadership seminar is designed for high school sophomores to recognize their leadership talents and apply them in becoming effective, ethical leaders in their home, schools, work-place and community.

The students will participate in hands-on leadership activities and meet state leaders in such areas as business, government, education, media and the non-profit sector.

Each September, every accredited public, private and charter high school in the country is invited to select and register outstanding sophomores as representatives to their local state seminar. Currently, nearly 9,000 sophomores, representing as many high schools nationwide, attend HOBY Leadership Seminars annually.

Kassidy is the daughter of Nadine and Les Maierhofer of Seneca.

All Seneca High School sophomore students were invited to pick up applications and submit essays for the opportunity to attend this seminar.
