Shorewood grad selected for Bank of America Student Leaders Program

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Recognized for her strong commitment to community service, Sophia Hansen-Day of Shoreline is one of five Puget Sound residents and 230 high school students nationwide selected for Bank of America’s Student Leaders Program. Sophia is a recent graduate of Shorewood High School and is interning at YWCA of Seattle-King County- Snohomish.

As a student leader, Sophia has been awarded a paid, eight-week summer internship at the YWCA. This comes at a time of high teen unemployment rates where many teens are struggling to find meaningful work this summer. At this internship, she will have invaluable learning and professional development experiences while also supporting a local community organization.

As part of the recognition, Sophia will also be attending the Bank of America’s Student Leadership Summit in Washington DC, July 10-15. At the summit, Student Leaders will take part in leadership training and participate in interactive workshops, Capitol Hill briefings and participate in a service project with Operation Homefront to create care packages for military families.

Bank of America created this program based on the belief that leadership and service are critical elements helping to propel the nation and our world forward. This year alone, the company is investing more than $1 million in the student leadership program and has committed more than $8 million since the program’s inception in 2004.
