Jay & Melodee, Parents of 2012 Ambassador
Just wanted to drop you guys a note from a proud parent who was blown away Saturday at how great the HOBY experience was. My daughter…was in one of the orange groups. Everyone in their group had such a great time they [joined the HOBY] Facebook group and have been keeping in contact. They are now planning to do a CLeW together in the near future. They are on fire!!! My wife and I were blown away at the quality of people involved with HOBY and we just wanted to relay that to you fine folks…Thanks for all you efforts in putting this fine event on for these great kids. Thanks again for everything and making a mark in our daughter’s life. She left HOBY truly feeling the sky is the limit. You guys are O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G!!!!!”

“HOBY has given both my children the chance to decide to make a difference in this world and our community. I love that this program encourages them to excel and to stand out in their schools and their communities and to serve others. These are values that shape their future and have given them confidence. They have had a lot of fun too.
It all started with an essay. She was selected to represent her school and little did I know she would still be volunteering and involved with this marvelous organization. She went as a sophomore and now that she’s out of school it is still giving her opportunities to give back. Both of my children attended World Leadership Conference. They met other students from around the world and they discussed issues that brought commonality to them. I love that my kids are still involve and look forward to serving other HOBY ambassadors. I think this organization is shaping their future to be full of good and wholesome values.”
