PTHS Scholars of Excellence: Proviso West Student to Attend HOBY Leadership Seminar

Inspiring, educational, compassionate, energizing, motivating, and life-changing are some of the words that students, schools, parents, alumni, volunteers and supporters use to describe Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY).  Each year high school students from across the globe participate in the program that is designed to foster strong leadership skills and service in high school students. Only one sophomore from each school is selected. At Proviso West High School that sophomore is Nicole Miller of Maywood.

“This is a nice opportunity for me to show leadership skills and to branch out and learn more,” said Nicole. “I hope that I’ll get more knowledge about what leadership is so that I may become a better leader.”

Nicole has a 3.5 G.P.A. She plays softball and volleyball at Proviso West. She volunteers at Hines Veterans Hospital and at local homeless shelters. The idea of becoming a better leader, inspired Nicole to compete with her fellow classmates for what prior HOBY students call an opportunity of a lifetime. Nicole wrote an essay about leadership and was chosen by a committee of Proviso West counselors. Each year Proviso West counselor, Ms. Daiberl, facilitates the search for a HOBY representative.

“Nicole was chosen based on her essay on leadership,” said Ms. Daiberl. “She did the best job.  She wants to go to HOBY to learn and apply what she learns there back in her school. I enjoy doing this each year because I come into contact with such outstanding young people, and I see the positive results when they return from the seminar and apply what they have learned.”

The Leadership Seminar is designed for high school sophomores to recognize their leadership talents and apply them in becoming effective, ethical leaders in their homes, schools, workplaces and communities. This year 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.

Last spring more than 9,000 10th graders were registered to represent their schools at state seminars across the country. The 2011 HOBY Leadership Seminar will take place  May 20th - 22nd at North Park University in Chicago.

Congratulations Nicole! Keep up the excellent work!
