Lions sponsor two students for conference
Two Bemidji High School students will attend the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Conference, sponsored by the Bemidji Lions Club.
The mission of the HOBY is to develop the global youth community to a life dedicated to leadership, service, and innovation, a press release said.
Hugh O’Brien, noted motion picture and television star, was the originator of the Leadership Conference. Candidates were recommended by faculty and staff and were asked to submit a written resume of their achievements and plans for the future.
One of the 2017 and both 2018 recipients along with the counselors were able to attend a recent Lions Club meeting.
