The 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.

Nominations for the 2016 award are now open. All nominations must be submitted or postmarked by Monday, March 7, 2016.

To nominate someone for the award, please use one of the following options:
