UTICA -- On Point for College held a dinner Tuesday for their volunteers and mentors.

Students, mentors, and volunteers of On Point came together to network and to celebrate all of their hard work.


The annual dinner is a way to thank mentors and volunteers for the support they give to On Point students and graduates.

Sam Rowser, the executive director of On Point, says having this dinner is important because it allows students to make connections and build their professional network in the community.

"It gives our students an opportunity to network with individuals that they might not otherwise have had an opportunity to meet, and be able to have a connection in the community of someone that they can work with to build their skills in a particular area that they're interested in,” Rowser said. “So we hope everyone walks away, our students, with a new found friend in a profession that they want to go into. And our volunteers and mentors, with a young person that they can work with to help prosper and grow and be a productive member of our community."

20 On Point students who had the highest grade point averages for the fall 2017 semester were presented with laptop computers.

Those laptops were donated by the company Welch Allyn.

At the dinner, people were able to fellowship with each other and a cake was served in honor of the volunteers and mentors.
