IB junior Simone Till was one of four Tampa Bay Area students to receive the Bank of America (BOA) Leadership Award for the summer.  The Bank of America Student Leaders program annually helps to connect 225 community-minded high school juniors and seniors to employment, skills development (e.g. in personal finance) and service.

Simone has been awarded a paid 7-week summer internship with the Boys and Girls Clubs.  She will also participate in a week-long national leadership summit in Washington, D.C. The Student Leaders Summit focuses on skill building and creating a more civically engaged society.  Students will meet with lawmakers and attend seminars.
