The East Manoa Lions Club sponsored Christian Schroppel to the Hugh O'Brien Youth (HOBY) Leadership seminar held at the University of Hawaii. HOBY lasts for 3 days and invites prominent leaders in Hawaii to speak to the youths about community service and leadership. His experience at the HOBY seminar changed his life said Christian, and let him view community service with enthusiasm instead of a chore. He is performing 100 hours of community service as a result of attending the seminar.
The picture below shows Christian, in the red shirt, with the East Manoa Lions Club members on July 27, 2010 at Hee Hing Restaurant where Christian gave a speech on his experiences to our members.
