RATON — Raton High School is pleased to announce that Tori Anne Platero and Jaydon Romero will be representing RHS at the 2018 New Mexico HOBY Leadership Seminar that will be held in Albuquerque on the University of New Mexico campus.
The Hugh O’Brien Youth’s (HOBY) flagship program, the State Leadership Seminar is designed to help high school sophomores to recognize their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their home, school, workplace and community. The seminar curriculum is based on the Social Change Model of Leadership and develops leadership from three perspectives: Personal Leadership, Group Leadership, and Leadership for Society. Tori Anne and Jaydon will attend a three-day seminar and participate in hands-on leadership activities, meet leaders in their state, and explore their own personal leadership skills while learning how to lead others and make a positive impact in their community.
Congratulations Tori Anne and Jaydon!
