School is about to begin and the Tooele Civic League and the Women’s Community Club of Tooele are encouraging sophomore students who are interested in being leaders to apply for special scholarships. The Hugh O’Brian Youth, HOBY, leadership scholarships are available to 10th grade students through your high school scholarship counselor.
Students are eligible to go further in the program for additional scholarships. In May, several Tooele County students attended the leadership seminar at Southern Utah State University. All Tooele County school counselors are aware of this program and will be happy to work with the students.
Both Tooele County General Federation of Women’s Clubs are able to help students with finances to attend the seminar. The groups will offer funding to those who would like to go but who cannot afford to do so on their own. For further information contact Geneal Dart, at 435-882-2036 or Ana Twitchell, 435-830-6707.
