Last year approximately 9,000 high school sophomores--tomorrow's leaders--participated in HOBY's Leadership Seminars in the United States. Miranda will be invited to the Missouri seminar to be held in the summer of 2020. This all expense paid state seminar will bring together a select group of high school sophomores with groups of distinguished leaders in business, government, education, and the professions to discuss present and future issues in America's incentive system and the democratic process. During the state seminar, two participants will be chosen to attend the HOBY World Leadership Congress to be held next July.
All sophomores were eligible for nomination. Miranda was chosen by her teachers because of her leadership ability, strong decision making skills, and participation in service activities
Miranda is active in cheerleading, volleyball, Future Business Leaders of America, FCCLA, and Student Council. She also competed in the National FBLA contest, held in San Antonio, last summer. Her team competed in the Social Medial Campaign category. She is also active in her church as a member of the St. Peter’s Youth Group.
The New Haven Lions Club, as they have done for several years, is supporting the students at New Haven High School by covering the cost of the HOBY seminar.
