Ellen Renk, daughter of Peru Rotarian Jim and Cathy Renk, shared her HOBY experience with us. HOBY stands for Hugh O'Brien Youth leadership. Ellen expressed that she could not have enjoyed this life-changing experience more.
Our Rotary group sponsored her trip along with other area businesses. Ellen was inspired by the event she participated in and made friends from all ends of the globe. Her excitement and enthusiasm was apparent throughout the presentation. Available only to students between sophomore and junior years, HOBY is committed to empowering youth, leading them and teaching them to be leaders, and encouraging all participants to excel in life.
