sophomore Katrina Bamba has been selected as a 2011 Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership ambassador.
Bamba will participate with other teens at the HOBY Conference in the spring of 2012. This conference brings tomorrow’s leaders together with today’s recognized leaders in business, government, education and other professions to discuss present and future issues.
Bamba was selected through a rigorous process that included input from faculty, students and administrators. She impressed the panel with her poise, confidence and genuine concern for others.
Bamba is a very conscientious student who is involved in many extracurricular activities that she enjoys and values. Among them are the pre-med club, environmental club, future business leaders of America (FBLA), model congress, science honor society and math team. An accomplished swimmer, she is also on the EMHS swim team as well as a year-round team at the Long Island Aquatic Club.
With her affinity for science and a desire to help others, Bamba is looking forward to a position in the medical field in the future. She credits her parents and her love of learning as her inspiration and motivation.
