City Academy 


September 29, 2019

Salt Lake City—As part of the company’s community day of service, 10 employees from the Wells Fargo Bank Commercial Real Estate Division spent much of the day at City Academy on Sept. 14.  The group was led by Wells Fargo Vice President (and City Academy board member) Erik Bengtzen and Vice President, Relationship Manager Mark Lemon.

In addition to working on the building’s landscaping and doing office work, the Wells Fargo employees taught classes on financial literacy and computer science.  They also conducted a college and career awareness class for 7th graders.  Prior to Sept. 14, students and teachers were asked to submit questions and possible topics to the guest teachers.  (In the financial literacy class, students submitted questions about student loans, student debt, interest rates and the financial implications of marriage.)

According to City Academy Executive Director Sonia Woodbury, “All of us at City Academy are grateful to Erik, Mark and the rest of the Wells Fargo team for interacting with our students and staff all day and being such a great example of service.  By having professional people like these at our school, we’re able to provide our students with valuable insights into what’s available to them after high school.”
