SHIPPENSBURG - Grace Rompolski has been selected to join 250 leaders representing many high schools from throughout central and northeast Pennsylvania at the Central Pennsylvania Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Seminar (HOBY) from May 16 to 19 at Shippensburg University.

Representing Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School, she is a daughter of Ann Marie and David Rompolski, of Coal Township.

For the past 55 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 a enthusiastic learning environment.

HOBY was established by the veteran actor Hugh O'Brian following a visit to Africa where he was inspired by a meeting with Dr. Albert Schweitzer. O'Brian says the organization's goal is to seek out, recognize and develop outstanding leadership potential among the nation's youth.
