Congratulations go out to Natalie Thacker.  Natalie, a sophomore at Clay High School, was nominated by the school's staff and selected by the sophomore class as the 2007-2008 Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership Award winner.  Natalie will represent Clay High School at the H.O.B.Y. Leadership Conference. Sophomores from across the state will attend the HOBY Leadership seminar at Denison University in Columbus. 
HOBY is designed to honor some of America's most outstanding students and further develop their leadership skills. HOBY leadership seminars bring together a select group of high school sophomores to interact with distinguished leaders in business, government, education, and other professions to discuss present and future issues. The goal is to provide them with a stimulating forum for learning about the American incentive system and the democratic process, while broadening their understanding of their leadership potential and quest for self-development.

Natalie is the daughter of Butch & Toni Thacker of Portsmouth. The other finalists for the award included Cameron Caseman, Morgan Garrett, Brian Summers, and Katie Wheeler.
