The 2015 Distinguished Alumnus Award

Each year since 1980, the Jamestown Community College Alumni Association has presented accomplished alumni with the Distinguished Alumnus Award, the Association’s highest honor. The award honors those who have typified the college’s tradition of excellence and brought credit to the college through personal accomplishment, professional achievement, or humanitarian service. Each year, the award is given at Commencement in the hopes that the award recipients will inspire JCC's newest alumni — its graduates — to achieve great things.

This year, the JCC Alumni Association will bestow the honor on five individuals at commencement exercises. On Friday, May 15 at commencement exercises in Olean, we'll honor Scott Kruse, '85 and Marjorie McIntosh, '98. On Saturday, May 16, at commencement exercises on our Jamestown Campus, we'll honor Sharon Hamilton, '89, Dr. Carol S. Johnson, '65, and Ebrahim Randeree, '88. It is our pleasure and privilege to recognize these individuals. To learn more about Mr. Kruse and Mrs. McIntosh, click here.
