Student seeks donations for leadership congress

Dalton Miller, a Douglas High junior, is looking to follow his dreams of becoming a nurse practitioner.

Miller aspires to attend New York University Medical School to pursue medical science.

He recently visited Las Vegas to attend and complete the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership program at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

The HOBY program allowed Miller the chance to enhance his leadership skills, as well as help the surrounding community.

It also encouraged Miller to pursue his dreams of becoming a nurse practitioner even more vigorously.

The program touches lives in every state as well as more than 30 different countries.

Miller was given the opportunity to help the homeless by creating hygiene packs and clean books for less-fortunate children.

HOBY offers a World Leadership Congress, July 19-26 in Chicago, Ill.

The leadership congress would provide Miller with the chance to interact with people from all around the world and listen to many speakers who are motivation for his pursuit in bettering the world.

Miller, however, is unable to produce the funds necessary to attend the congress.

He is reaching out to area residents for support in hopes to raise the approximately $2,000 the trip will cost.

This fee includes tuition, airfare, the program’s over night fees and a meal plan.

To donate visit Miller’s GoFundME account at or make checks out to Dalton Miller, 1884 Pinenut Rd, Gardnerville, NV 89410.
