Posted in Harmony Education

MINNEAPOLIS, March 15, 2016 – Wells Fargo announced Kiera Olson of Fillmore Central High School has been named a recipient of the ExCEL (Excellence in Community, Education and Leadership) Program. Wells Fargo sponsors the ExCEL Program as part of its premier corporate sponsorship of the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL).

The award recognizes high school juniors who are volunteers in local community organizations, have achieved classroom excellence and exhibit leadership skills in activities ranging from sports, fine arts, clubs and other programs. Students are nominated by their high schools and selected by an independent panel from throughout Minnesota schools. Hundreds are nominated annually and 36 are chosen.

“These are extraordinary students who will be our leaders of tomorrow,” said Minnesota Region President Joe Ravens of Wells Fargo. “We are proud to recognize these students, who set the bar high for others through all that they are accomplishing during their high school years.” Wells Fargo is sponsoring this program for the first time this year.

Wells Fargo is the premier corporate sponsor of the MSHSL. This sponsorship helps offset the costs associated with tournaments and fine arts events for Minnesota students. It also supports programs such as the MSHSL High School Hall of Fame.
