McNamee Lochner is proud to sponsor the Capital Region Sponsor‐A‐Scholar Financial Professionals Golf Open, an event designed for professional networking and charitable fundraising to support local economically disadvantaged young men and women and guide them toward high school graduation and college attendance. Capital Region Sponsor‐A‐Scholar inspires and empowers promising, underserved students to succeed in high school, college, and life.
As of 2017, the Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar program has supported more than 215 local students as they earned their college degrees, and they actively work with more than 120 current college students. Sixty eight percent of their Scholars earn a college degree within six years of their high school graduation, compared to the national average of 39.7% degree attainment for the same demographic.
The organization’s blend of personalized academic support, long-term mentoring, and financial assistance is what makes such an impact in these students’ lives; McNamee Lochner is honored to be part of this organization’s efforts.
