HOBY is obviously something I am passionate about. This statement is true for thousands of past, present and future HOBY ambassadors and volunteers. With the idea of a recruitment drive, the Ohio West HOBY crew created a Facebook Event called HOBY Social Media Splash Days. This event was quickly noticed by HOBY sites across the country and took Facebook (well, at least my Facebook) by storm. Granted, I probably have more HOBY “friends” than some, but I was inspired this morning when I checked my news feed and saw it swamped with comments of how HOBY had changed lives. I figured I would take this opportunity to share what I have seen today. From Washington to New York to Mississippi, I am so happy to have these amazing people as friends and fellow HOBsters. I have to thank Ohio West HOBY for giving me my HOBY inspiration for the week… it might even last all month!
Christopher L Selix HOBY changed my life and inspired me to become a better person. Every year I attend I leave with found memories, great new friends, a following of wonderful future leaders, and even new family members. When HOBY is over I count down the days to the next HOBY year. I love it! Ask me more about and I will talk your ear off! Get involved become a HOBYteer, and together we’ll change the world!
