HOBY Representative Chosen
HOBY State Leadership Seminar, June 2017
Each year PTHS selects one sophomore to attend a state leadership seminar in Denton, Texas the second week of June. HOBY empowers high school sophomores to recognize their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their homes, schools and communities. The selected student attends a three or four-day seminar to participate in hands-on leadership activities, meet leaders in the sate, and explore their personal leadership skills.

Interested sophomores will need to complete and submit the online application above. One sophomore will be chosen from the applicant pool by November 18, 2016. An alternate will also be chosen from the applicant pool. So hurry up and get that application submitted!! I can't wait to see who goes next June!
See me in the counselor's office if you have any questions and good luck!

FAQs about the PSAT:

Where will the test be given? It will be on the high school campus. You will receive a note the day before telling you what room to report to that morning.
What should I bring? You should bring #2 pencils, an eraser, a calculator (the school does not provide them, so bring your own!!), a sweatshirt in case your room is cold.
Does the PSAT cost anything? Sophomores take the PSAT at no cost to them...it's free.
Do I have to take the PSAT? Yes, PTHS requires you to take this test.
Do I have to study for the PSAT? Studying for this test is not required, however, you will receive a booklet about the PSAT and it would be a good idea to look it over so that you know what to expect the day of the test.
