Summer Reunion

Alumni ReunionOn Sunday, July 17th, a group of approximately 20 HOBY alumni reunited at Principle Park in Des Moines, Iowa for the annual Iowa HOBY alumni (and friends) summer reunion. This event has traditionally been held as an after seminar reunion event and has taken place at Principle Park for the past few years. This year, everyone met up at 11:30 in the morning to share some chips, subs, and soda (or water). The Iowa Cubs’ game started around 1:00, and even though the Cubs fell to Las Vegas, it wasn’t enough to dampen the spirits of all the HOBY alumni present. Needless to say, everyone had an OUTSTANDING time! Great memories were had and many of those present were able to discuss not only past HOBY stories, but all the amazing goals and accomplishments the IA HOBY alumni have been busy pursuing.

The Iowa HOBY Alumni board would like to thank the Corporate Board (and specifically our advisor Rhonda for all her help), the alumni who attended, and all of the Alumni Board members who helped make this event such a success. Be sure to keep up-to-date with the Alumni Board this Fall as we hold challenges, volunteer hour contests, and plan the winter reunion! If you have past alumni photos, Iowa HOBY stories, testimonials, or want to get involved with the Alumni Board, be sure to email me for more information at

Stay Outstanding!
