Hudson Curtin '19 will represent Canisius High School this summer at the annual three-day Hugh O'Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Seminar at the University of Rochester. Hudson was selected from 15 Canisius High School sophomores who applied. Aidan Bowerman '19 was selected as the alternate.
HOBY was founded in 1958 by Hugh O'Brian, who passed away in September 2016. Mr. O'Brian had a successful show business career, but he never lost sight of his responsibility to use his own good fortune in ways to help others. Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership was organized in 1958 originally to seek out, recognize, and develop leadership potential in high school sophomores.
For over five decades, HOBY has inspired young people to make a difference and become catalysts for positive change. HOBY aims to inspire and develop a global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service, and innovation.
