James F. Rogers '76 Internship Fund
James F. Rogers graduated from SUNY Oswego with a BS in Business Administration in 1976 and believes the experience he gained as the Business Development Representative intern for Columbia Banking in Oswego was a key element in his development and career success. It helped him win the Outstanding Business Student Award and provided a valuable reference on his resume. He strongly believes in the value of performing work and gaining the related experience in one’s career field while still a student. This Internship sponsorship by James is his way to give back to Oswego and pay it forward to current students who have shown their dedication to their studies and to working in a Business career.
