Hudson – Hudson sophomore Emma Polk has been selected to attend the Massachusetts site of the Hugh O”Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Seminar. She will join approximately 230 other young leaders representing almost 170 high schools from throughout Massachusetts June 14-16 at Bentley University in Waltham.

Ms. Polk, the daughter of Marc and Jocelyn Polk of Hudson, will represent Hudson High School at the statewide seminar.

HOBY leadership seminars bring together a select group of high school sophomores from public and private high schools to interact with groups of distinguished leaders in business, government, education, media, and community service occupations to discuss present and future issues. The goal is to provide young leaders a stimulating forum for learning about critical issues while broadening their understanding of their leadership potential and quest for self-development.? HOBY leaders are also challenged to return to their communities to perform at least 100 hours of community service within 12 months following the seminar.

Further information about HOBY activities and sponsorship opportunities is available by calling Gail Elmore, corporate board president, at 508-839-6843 or email at gail.elmore@verizon.net.
