No. There is no point and mentioning that is not going to improve your chances of being accepted at that particular school. Let your letter writer speak for him/her self. Don't restate the obvious...

I did for a "why this school" essay. I like the idea of attending the same school as one of my mentors and it gave that unique connection that isn't on the website for everyone to put in theirs.
