BLUE BELL, Pa., Oct. 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CTN Solutions is pleased to announce that Drew Morrisroe, the company's President and CEO, has been elected Chairman of the Board of Governors of Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY).
"The decades of dedicated focus and hard work that Drew has exhibited for HOBY cannot be easily measured," said HOBY CEO Javier LaFianza. "His election as Chair of the Board of Governors is not just reflective of his past accomplishments, but also a testament to his leadership ability, which will play a crucial role in continuing our organization on its path towards further success."
Hugh O'Brian, HOBY's founder added, "I am proud that Drew is a HOBY alum and appreciate his leadership of HOBY's board."
HOBY was founded in 1958 by actor Hugh O'Brian, famous for his television role as Wyatt Earp, after a life-changing experience in Africa with humanitarian Dr. Albert Schweitzer. HOBY's mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. HOBY programs are conducted annually throughout the United States, serving local and international high school students.
A HOBY seminar is a unique experience where high school students are exposed to leaders in virtually every profession and are challenged to think critically for themselves. Today, over 435,000 proud alumni make HOBY stronger than ever. HOBY alumni are leaders in their schools and communities, throughout the United States and the world, making a difference for others through service.
Drew attended a HOBY program in 1990 while a student at LaSalle College High School. In 1997, he chaired the Pennsylvania East HOBY leadership seminar, becoming one of the youngest in the organization's history to do so. He worked with Hugh to bring the HOBY World Leadership Congress (WLC) to his alma mater Philadelphia University in 1999. He has remained active as a speaker, advisor, board member and has traveled with Hugh to establish HOBY programs overseas.
"Hugh's vision and dream have had a tremendous impact on my life and the lives of millions who HOBY has touched directly and indirectly. Along with thousands of other HOBY volunteers, I am proud to continue supporting our mission in the years to come," said Morrisroe.
