This past week, Mississippi HOBY made the decision to move the 2021 Leadership Seminar to a virtual setting. The event, which was scheduled for June 4-6, will now begin on Friday, June 4, and end on Saturday, June 5. This change will help us maintain safety for all participants. 


Ambassadors and school counselors will be contacted by Mississippi HOBY directly about the change in venue. We are planning for another outstanding seminar with renowned speakers from across the state, thought-provoking activities, and extensive focus on personal, team, and societal leadership development as well as community service.
