Local students tapped for leadership seminar

HOBY Scholarship winners (Deel and Dean-Prince)


The Canaseraga Lions Club has selected Arkport 10th grader Laura Deel and Canaseraga 10th grader Alexis Dean-Prince to attend a leadership seminar organized by the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership this summer at the University of Rochester.

The curriculum for the seminar is based on HOBY’s vision to motivate and empower individuals to make a positive difference within the global society. By developing and understanding effective and compassionate leadership, the organization seeks to help students realize their leadership potential and take action in their homes, schools, workplace, communities and the world.

HOBY is a youth leadership organization whose mission is to inspire and develop a global community of youth and volunteers dedicated to leadership, service and innovation.
