ON POINT FOR COLLEGE INC
October 31, 2012

On Point for College is one of the most caring and effective college access programs in the country! The founder and CEO, Ginny Donohue, has the gift and skills to find the right people to work with the students. The staff are a professional, knowledgeable, loving group that works tirelessly to encourage high school students to consider college, helps them with their applications, finds financial support, provides school and dorm essentials, visits, mentors and counsels them along the way, and helps them find summer jobs and jobs after graduation. Moreover, On Point helps these young people increase undertanding of the incredibly precious people they are! I have had the privilege of being an enthusiastic volunteer driver and donor for nearly three years and have met over 75 On Point students. I see them developing a strong sense of personal responsibility (instead of dependency), an attitude of gratitude (instead of entitlement), and a heart to give back by working with younger students! On Point serves the students, the community and the country! It has been an indescribable privilege, joy and blessing to get to know and serve these students! Paul
