Felix Muzza, Class of 1972, will receive the Distinguished Alumnus Award during Commencement exercises on our Jamestown Campus on Saturday, May 17!

Muzza earned an Associate of Arts degree in Social Sciences from JCC and is currently the interim experiential learning coordinator for JCC. He is perhaps best known for his 35-year career with Jamestown Public Schools.

Muzza began his career with the school system as a work-study coordinator at Jamestown High School before becoming the Dean of Students at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School and, later, its assistant principal. He was the principal at C.C. Ring Elementary School for 14 years before returning to Lincoln School as its principal for eight years. 

In 1999, Muzza was the recipient of the Gen. Douglas MacArthur Service to Youth Award. In 1990, he was recognized by the Chautauqua Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Council in recognition of his work in alcohol and substance abuse prevention education.

Muzza is active in the community. He currently serves as the vice president of the Babe Ruth World Series Committee; is a volunteer driver for international students attending JCC; is the treasurer for the Holy Name Society at Holy Apostles Church; and serves on the Community Planning Committee for Jamestown Public Schools.

After graduating from JCC, Muzza went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in secondary education from SUNY New Paltz in 1975. He earned a Master of Science degree in Education from SUNY Fredonia in 1983 and a Certificate of Advanced Study in School Administration there in 1986.
