Michael Chavez serves as Kansas HOBY’s Director of Facilitators. He has been with our seminar for 10 years now, and enjoys every minute of it!
Michael was an ambassador for the 2002 seminar. He was a shy student to begin with, but after attending HOBY, he took a 180-degree turn. “I began taking on new challenges in all aspects of my life and have ever since.” He has carried on the tradition in his professional life at his job as an Admissions Representative for the University of Kansas.
DIRECTOR OF FACILITATORS
Being a director of almost 20 facilitators from all across the state, Michael stays busy. He recruits the greatest leaders in Kansas, and brings them into one place to facilitate the ambassadors groups, along with various other tasks.
Working with these people is always a blast, but with his personality color being a blue, Michael is a lover of all people. Blues are traditionally known to be the emotional, loving, caring people. “I just want every facilitator to be 100% comfortable. It’s all about being cohesive and rubbing off my enthusiasm on others.”
10 YEARS ON STAFF
Serving on staff for 10 years now, there’s one thing that keeps Michael coming back year after year; the ambassadors. “I love seeing them break out of their shells and find their potential. It’s so contagious and spreads like wildfire. It lasts me an entire year of Positive Mental Attitude.”
