Henrico students selected as ‘Student Leaders’

Two high school students from Henrico County recently were selected as Bank of America Student Leaders, a program that offers teens an opportunity to build leadership skills through paid summer internships at local YMCA chapters.

Sarra Hanna, a recent graduate of JR Tucker High School, is interning at the Patrick Henry YMCA. Jennifer Lin, a rising senior at Douglas S. Freeman High School, is interning at the Shady Grove YMCA.

The teens are among five students selected as Student Leaders from the Metro Richmond area.

The Student Leaders program connects teens to summer employment that supports their long-term financial success and in turn helps the economic progress of Greater Richmond.

“Early employment opportunities help teens build the skills they need to establish careers and get on a path toward financial stability,” said Victor Branch, Richmond market president for Bank of America.

The two Henrico teens joined more than 200 other Student Leaders from around the country in Washington D.C. July 10-15 for a Student Leadership Summit. At the event, students discussed how to build a more diverse and inclusive society and gained a better understanding of how cross-sector collaboration creates community impact.
