Alec Arnett

HOBY is a Leadership Program meant to develop the youth of today’s society into leaders. HOBY wants to inspire the youth to make a positive difference “based on effective and compassionate leadership.” Being selected as Portsmouth West High School’s HOBY Representative is a great honor.

Each year the Guidance Office selects a representative to attend the Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership seminar at Denison University in Granville, OH. Hundreds of sophomores from the southern portion of Ohio gather there for three days to learn leadership skills and practices. 

Our 2015 HOBY Representative is Gracie Evans.
