Jamie Morgenstern Chosen for Bank of America Leadership Program
Long Beach High School senior Jamie Morgenstern was one of only five students from Long Island schools to be selected to participate in the Bank of America Student Leaders program. Through the program, she will complete an eight-week paid internship with a local non-profit. She will also take part in a weeklong leadership summit in Washington, D.C.
Through the Student Leaders program, Bank of America recognizes high school juniors and seniors who step outside of the classroom to contribute service in their own communities and beyond. An International Baccalaureate diploma candidate, and an executive board member of the National Honor Society and the B'nai B'rith Youth Organization, Jamie has spearheaded many service activities in her school and her community. She was named a semifinalist in the Coca-Cola National Scholars Competition, which recognizes academic achievement and community service.
"Jamie is a great student who is a model to others in the service that gives back to the community," said Interim Principal Neil Lederer.
