Community Bank Event

Onondaga Community College President Debbie L. Sydow, Ph.D., and Mark Tryniski ‘81, CEO and President of Community Bank welcomed nearly 50 alumni to a reception held recently at Community Bank System’s headquarters in Syracuse. During the reception, Dr. Sydow presented an update on the campus including the steady, record-setting growth and the continued commitment to student success.

Mr. Tryniski spoke to the alumni – many of whom are local business and community leaders - about the importance of the College to the Central New York community. And, he encouraged the attendees to reconnect with the College and their fellow alumni by participating in the College’s upcoming 50th anniversary celebration set to launch in fall 2011.

Alumni also had an opportunity to learn more about the Reach Beyond Campaign when Tom Burton, Vice President of Institutional Advancement at Onondaga Community College, spoke about the Presidential Scholarship Fund, the SRC Arena, the Children’s Learning Center and the Excellence and Innovation Fund.
