Jack Geller named Bank of America student leader

Jack Geller, a Mendota Heights resident and senior at St. Paul Academy and Summit School, is one of five Twin Cities teens selected to be part of the 2016 Bank of America Student Leaders program this summer. 

As a former St. Paul Jewish Community Center Camp Butwin counselor, Geller is passionate about teaching children about the culture and environment of their local community. 

He is involved in several of his school’s extra-curricular activities. Most recently he served as the junior class Leadership Council representative, had a prominent role on the debate team and was a Student Political Union member. 

Geller’s volunteer efforts at Feed My Starving Children and The Sanneh Foundation have taught him valuable leadership skills that he sees as transferable to the roles he will take on in the future. 

As part of the Bank of America Student Leaders program, each student receives a paid, eight-week internship. Geller is interning at Hennepin Theatre Trust in Minneapolis. The internships provide students with work experience while also supporting the nonprofits with extra help this summer. 

The program also includes a trip to Washington, D.C., to participate in the Bank of America Student Leadership Summit.
