Jill Serleth

Class of 2020
Jill Serleth

Class of 2020

My name is Jill Serleth and I am a junior at Winona Senior High School. At school, I enjoy challenging myself as much as I can and love taking difficult classes that help me become a more educated individual. However, more than other classes, English and Literature are generally my overall favorite subjects. I especially enjoy speaking my mind through writing as much as I am able to.

Outside of school, I take part in numerous activities and hobbies. I participate in soccer, nordic skiing, and track during the school year to keep me busy during the times I am not in class. I also have fun rock climbing and generally just exploring the outdoors. During the school year, I play the clarinet for our high school band; performing with the pep band during football games, marching for our local parades, and even playing with our Symphonic band this past year. Generally speaking, I think I would consider myself a pretty well-rounded student.

I am beyond excited to be lucky enough to be working with the International Business Internship program. As media chair, I am hoping to step outside of my box and gain new experiences while collaborating with members of my own community as well as people across the country! Never have I taken part in such a global project that allows me to connect with and help people in such a way that this program allows me to, and I am thrilled to see where the organization will take us!

Class of 2020

My name is Pa Cha Vang, and I am a Junior at Winona Senior High School. This year I am currently enrolled in Advanced Placement and college classes at our local university. Although each subject has its perks, biology and chemistry interest me the most! I hope to make the world a better place by showing everyone I meet compassion and positivity.

Throughout high school, I have taken part of the Girl’s Soccer team, and been elected to Student Council. Although, throughout the years, I have found myself to be better in certain activities. My out of school hours have been filled with being in the Spanish National Honor Society, LINK, Knowledge Bowl, Music Listening Competition, and National Honors Society. I have been an active member within the music program, playing the trumpet for six years, and being section leader. I play in the Symphonic Band, Marching Band, Pep Band, Jazz Band, and Orchestra. As a junior, I have also been selected to play at the Big 9 Select Band. For the past two years, I have volunteered to help out with the Special Olympics. Additionally, I am a leader for a group in our community called, “GRAB” (which stands for “Girls Reaching Above and Beyond”); this organization focuses on empowering young, beautiful, colored girls to do anything they set their minds to. In the summer, I have a job where I coach(teams of five and six year olds) soccer.

I am so privileged to be a part of the International Business Initiative Program. I enjoy fundraising very much and for the past couple of years, I have been lucky enough to be fundraising with the Student Council, Spanish National Honor Society, and a local non-profit called, “Project FINE” (this organization services new incoming immigrants). As the fundraising chair, I am beyond honored to help fundraise for our deserving business partner and hope to make a positive impact!

Skye Schultz

Class of 2020

My name is Skye Schultz and I am a Junior at Winona Senior High School. I am currently enrolled in mostly college classes at our local university, but I am still an active part of our high school with the two classes I am taking there. I am mostly interested in Social Studies classes, as I love learning from history in order to help create a better future. I am hoping to continue studying in the Humanities, and am very interested in social work.

Throughout high school I have had fun in both cross-country and soccer, but I have learned I am better suited for different things. I have kept busy with Music Listening Contest, String Quartet, Knowledge Bowl, Spanish Honors Society, and being elected to the schools Cite Team. I also enjoy working at the Winona Public Library and volunteering at the Dakota Homecoming for the last 4 years. I am especially proud of my work with the March for Our Lives movement where I was able to be a student organizer in our successful school walkout and trip to the Minnesota Capitol, as well as being a speaker at Winona’s Candle-light vigil and Winona March for Our Lives.

My time being an intern at the Advanced Law and Trial Summit for Leadership Initiatives this last summer was very influential in my life, and while I was there I knew right away that I wanted to start a team for the International Business Internship Program at my school. Being the Team Lead surrounded by such great team members and working for an amazing cause is something I am extremely grateful for. I can’t wait to watch myself and my team members grow in the next 2 years because of this opportunity.

Cooper Hancock

Class of 2020

My name is Cooper Hancock and I am a Junior at Winona Senior High School. This year I am taking multiple AP classes this year, as well as an online college course. My favorite class this year would be Tech Nest, an IT internship program at our school. I enjoy learning about technology as well as how IT works in a school setting.

Outside of classes, I am Stage Manager of Drama Club, and also volunteered as stage manager for last year’s local USO Show. I have leadership experience as well, as I am a student representative on both our school’s Site Team and school district’s Curriculum Committee. I am also a member of 4-H, serving as Treasurer of the club, and President of the county Federation. For the past 4 years, I have been learning Spanish through school, and I recently have started teaching myself Norwegian.

I am very excited to be a part of the International Business Internship Program. I have spent a lot of hours looking at colleges and I believe that makes me more than qualified to be College Assistance Chair. This position will hopefully help me and the rest of the team get ready for college, and pick the right one.

I am currently taking college courses at the college, and am taking band and some AP classes at the high school. I love learning new things and expanding my knowledge in all subjects, however, my favorite subjects in school are math and chemistry!

In school, I play my alto saxophone in the jazz band and the symphonic band. I also am in honor bands and a jazz combo that I really enjoy! I am a LINK leader, and I encourage the incoming freshman to work hard in High School to achieve their goals. I am also a member of the Spanish Honor Society, Nation and Student Council. Additionally, I am a student leader, for my grade, who helps organize the Special Olympics every year. Outside of school I play Soccer, Nordic Ski, and run Track, but my favorite sport is soccer!

I am so honored to be part of the International Business Internship Program! I am eager to make an impact on lives around the globe, from thousands of miles away. I would like to inspire others by showing them that age doesn’t matter, and they too can leave an impact on people across the globe.

My name is Erin Renk and I am a junior at Winona Senior High School. I am currently taking mostly PSEO classes at Winona State and AP courses. I am mostly interested in literature and history classes, as I believe they are the most useful tools to learn about the world.

I have been very involved with the tennis program the past four years, making varsity last year. Most of my spare time is spent working at the Winona Area Tennis Center after school and studying. I am also involved in knowledge bowl, the music listening competition, and am a member of the National Honor Society.

I am honored at the privilege of being in the International Business Initiatives Program. It is such an incredible opportunity to being volunteering and helping those in need while I am still in high school. I look forward to learning more and more about the program and gaining experience and skills in volunteering.
