BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Once President Obama left Buffalo, he headed to Rochester for lunch, and then the motorcade headed for the Syracuse region.
The president began his tour at the UB North Campus, to talk about the epic struggle many students face while paying for college. The president laid out a plan to help reduce the rising cost. The bus tour took the president to Binghamton Friday and later to Scranton, Pennsylvania.
The trip was a day UB sophomore Silvanna D’Ettore will never forget. The White House called her personally and asked her if she would like to introduce the president at UB. She of course accepted.
During her speech, she told the crowd how important college is to her and so many other students. Friday, she appeared on Winging It! Buffalo Style. She explained that the White House was looking for a student with very specific qualifications, and she was chosen.
Silvanna says she is going to college to become a dentist.
