2024 HOBY Tennessee Seminar

HOBY Tennessee is a transformative experience. Like the other HOBY seminars across the country – and even the world – HOBY Tennessee invites sophomores to join them as ambassadors at our seminar.

We hope these ambassadors will learn how to think and lead. We expose them to many incredible leaders who will show and tell them about their experiences as a leader – personally, in a group, in society, and through service.

The seminar is voluntarily run – primarily by those who have previously experienced it as a student. I was an ambassador in 2014, and it changed my life. I am confident 2024’s ambassadors will say the same.

We invite schools across Tennessee to nominate up to four ambassadors to attend our 2024 seminar on May 17-19 at UT Southern in Pulaski. The cost for each student is $375. This covers everything the student will need for the weekend – from housing to meals.

If you are a guidance counselor with a question about nominating a student, please get in touch with our Director of Recruitment, Ethan Triplett, at

For all other questions, please reach out to

Yours in Service,

Shelly Mosley
Leadership Seminar Chair
