MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 14, 2005--Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak will visit U.S. Bank on Tuesday, June 14 to welcome interns from Minneapolis high schools who are starting their summer jobs at U.S. Bank as part of the STEP UP Summer Jobs program. He will be on the 20th floor of U.S. Bank Plaza, 200 S. Sixth Street, Minneapolis on Tuesday, June 14 at 12:15 p.m.

There are 15 high school students working at U.S. Bank during the summer of 2005, five of whom will be on hand to meet the mayor during his visit to U.S. Bank Plaza. They are: Taleisha Duncan, Takeisha Duncan, Melody Boyd, Ashlee Irwin and Keng Thao. They will be working full-time at U.S. Bank in account reconciliation, telephone support and computer support areas.

"Minneapolis is working this summer," said Rybak. "Through the city's Summer Youth Employment Training Program, STEP UP and other programs, more than a thousand Minneapolis students and youth will be reporting for work. The city is lucky to have partners in the community like U.S. Bank, General Mills and Allina who are making the dream of a summer job a reality for so many of our kids."
