Tell us a little bit about yourself:
My name is Tristan Slemmons. While I am from Minneapolis, Minnesota, I consider Chicago home. I am the Community Relations Manager for Chicago with Bank of America.
How did you first heard about IIF?
I was first introduced to the Israel Idonije Foundation in 2010 as he was recognized as a Bank of America Local Hero. The Local Heroes program was a Bank of America award that annually recognized 5 stellar individuals for their work in the community. A selection panel selected Israel and 4 others that year among 75 applications. I believe Israel’s story resonated and was chosen because he is passionate about service and youth and sincerely making a difference.
