Local student attends a leadership conference
Clara Watson recently attended the Mississippi Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Seminar in Jackson, Miss. Clara, representing Ingomar Attendance Center, joined over 200 other young leaders from high schools across the state for the three-day leadership conference.
HOBY leadership seminars bring together a select group of high school sophomores from public, private, and parochial schools 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 stimulating forum for learning about critical issues 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.
Clara is the daughter of Jeff and Rita Watson.
