Happy 90th Birthday, Hugh O’Brian!

If you have liked our Facebook page, you may have seen that today is Hugh O’Brian’s 90th birthday.  Almost 60 years ago, Hugh O’Brian founded the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Seminar.  We all should celebrate! The man who created what is bringing us all together this summer is celebrating his 90th birthday. I know it is a little cliche, but HOBY is really one of those “life changing” things in my life. I have been fortunate to meet so many people and learn so many things from them over the years.. all because Hugh O’Brian had an idea to make a change in the world.  We get an opportunity this summer to meet even more ambassadors and learn from each of them.  So, take this time and be thankful for the man who gave us the opportunity to experience HOBY and everything that encompasses.  Whether you are an alum, a parent, a volunteer, a counselor, or a future ambassador, we have all been touched by what Hugh O’Brian has done for us. Happy birthday, Hugh O’Brian! Thank you for everything!

Happy Birthday Hugh

Happy Birthday Hugh 2

Junior Staff Applications!

Hey HOBY alumni!

We’re getting close again! I sent out an e-mail containing information about Junior Staff applications earlier this evening. In case you didn’t get it, you can e-mail us at hobytxcajuniorstaff@gmail.com or follow the links below.

The seminar this year is set for June 12-14. As staff, we ask that you arrive the night before (Thursday, June 11) for training and preparation, so please plan accordingly. The seminar will be held on the UT campus, as usual.

Applications will be processed online via FormStack this year. Below is the link to complete the Junior Staff Application online. It’s a fairly simple application, but please make note that the application needs to be completed in its entirety once you start it. There’s not an option to save the partially completed application and return to finish it later. Also, please make sure that you read the link containing Junior Staff Job Descriptions and Responsibilities in its entirety before you submit your application.

Link to application: https://hoby.formstack.com/…/2015_txca_junior_staff_applica…

The deadline for applications this year is Wednesday, April 15. Early applications are always much appreciated. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an e-mail at this address. (hobytxcastaff@gmail.com).

Once you’ve submitted the TXCA Junior Staff Application, please go to the HOBY International website here, to complete the HOBY International Annual Volunteer Application as well.

And of course, feel free to e-mail me with any questions.
