Student takes part in state leadership seminar



Chris Benson of North County High School participated in the Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Foundation's (HOBY) 1994 Maryland Leadership Seminar at the Columbia Inn in Baltimore.

HOBY is a national organization established in 1958 by actor Hugh O'Brien to seek out, recognize and develop the leadership potential of high school sophomores. The Maryland Leadership Seminar, held annually since 1978, builds leadership skills through a series of workshops and discussion groups. Students learn from leaders from the fields of business, government, education, science.

A Business Leaders' Luncheon at Oriole Park at Camden Yards and a tour of the Information Superhighway courtesy of Bell Atlantic's Chesapeake Training Facility were some of the special events attended by Chris, who is the son of Jim and Sharon Benson.
