Congratulations to Chevy Chase Trust’s Amy Newman, Senior Trust Officer, for being named by Montgomery County’s Urban Alliance as Mentor of the Year for her work with high school interns. Urban Alliance strives to equip young people with the necessary tools for lifelong economic self-sufficiency through extensive job skills training accompanied by a year-long paid internship program with corporate partners. Nominated by Najmah Abdur-Rahman, Chevy Chase Trust intern for the 2018-2019 school year, Amy was recognized for going above and beyond the expectations set by Urban Alliance in preparing interns for the future. “She’s become a professional mentor as well as a personal one, reviewing my scholarship applications, giving me advice on school, editing my essays and resume, and helping me create a LinkedIn profile,” according to Abdur-Rahman. “She was also very supportive when I faced challenges balancing all the commitments of my senior year and helped me find solutions. Whenever I needed someone this past year, Amy was always there, someone I knew I could trust and rely on to support me no matter the challenge.”
We are proud of our colleague, Amy Newman, who always gives more than expected, both with interns and clients.
