Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative was selected by the Bank of America Charitable Foundation to host two Student Leaders this summer for an eight-week internship program.
The Student Leaders program is a significant component of Bank of America’s commitment to strengthening the economic and social health of communities. At its core, Student Leaders is designed to help develop the next generation of community leaders.
TCCC’s Student Leaders are Riley Haas and Caroline Vail:
Riley Haas is a rising senior at Academic Magnet High School. Within the school environment, Riley is a member of many service clubs and organizations, including Key Club, Freshmen Peer Mentoring and National Honor Society.
Within the community, Riley volunteers with the Read365 Program, and she loves the opportunity to promote reading and build her student’s future school career. In addition, Riley plays club soccer for South Carolina United FC in Columbia, S.C., and for the varsity high school team, with aspirations to play in college.
Riley enjoys spending time with her family and friends, going to the beach, paddle boarding and playing indoor soccer in Charleston. In the future, Riley wants to pursue a career in the healthcare field.
Caroline Vail is a rising senior at Porter-Gaud School. She is involved in cheerleading, drama productions, mock trial teams, Model United Nations and the Senior Leadership Council.
She is interested in social change and hopes to study Social Science and Spanish in college. Caroline also currently volunteers with Read365 at Meeting Street Elementary @ Brentwood and is dedicated to making an impact on her community before leaving for college.
For this reason, she is excited to continue to work with TCCC this summer and to better understand their role in the community in the process.
