Emily Demyanovich, daughter of Lori Orach of Tamaqua and Nick Demyanovich of Tamaqua, has been selected to join 245 leaders representing high schools from throughout central and northeast Pennsylvania at the Central Pennsylvania Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Seminar (HOBY) from May 19-22 at Millersville University.

For the past 53 years, HOBY Leadership Seminars have brought together select groups of high school sophomores to interact with groups of distinguished leaders in business, government and education to discuss present and future issues in an enthusiastic learning environment. HOBY was established by veteran actor Hugh O'Brien following a visit to Africa, where he was inspired by a meeting with Dr. Albert Schweitzer. Further information about HOBY activities and sponsorship opportunities is available by visiting www.hoby.org or www.centralpahoby.org.
