Hollis Chan

The Indian Hill School District congratulates Indian Hill High School student Hollis Chan who was named as one of only four Bank of America Cincinnati Student Leaders® (#BofAStudentLeaders), an eight-week paid summer internship connecting juniors and seniors to employment, skills development, and service. These community-minded students will gain practical work and leadership experience and receive financial education coaching from Bank of America’s Better Money Habits curriculum, while working with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati, all while earning competitive wages.

“This is an incredible opportunity for Hollis, and we are exceptionally proud of his ambition to accept this elite summer learning experience,” said Indian Hill High School Principal Andy Gruber. “These are the types of opportunities we strive to prepare our students for, and Hollis is a wonderful example of success.” 
“Preparing a diverse pipeline of community-minded young students to be successful in the workforce is critical to Cincinnati’s long-term economic growth,” said Mark Ryan, president, Bank of America Cincinnati. “The exceptional teens selected for the Student Leaders program will not only gain practical work and life experience, but the community in return gains help from local nonprofits and a diverse pipeline of talent as these young adults enter the local workforce.”
At Indian Hill High School, Chan is the president of the SMILE Community Service Club, an organization dedicated to providing students with volunteer opportunities while enhancing local nonprofits. He is also the President of Music at a Time and the Wharton Investment Competition.
As part of the program, Chan will travel this summer to Washington D.C. for a week-long, all expenses paid, national leadership summit to learn how nonprofits, governments, and businesses collaborate to meet local needs. 
Celebrating its 20th anniversary year, the Student Leaders program recognizes 300 community-focused juniors and seniors from across the U.S. annually. Since 2004, Student Leaders has engaged more than 4,500 students and invested $42 million in more than 500 local nonprofits as a critical part of the bank’s long-standing effort to build pathways to economic mobility across nearly 100 markets.
