Lance S. Spicer, former chairman and long-time member of the JCC board of trustees and a current member of the JCC Foundation board of directors, has endowed the Sheridan E. Spicer Memorial Unified Student Assistance (USA) Scholarship in memory of his father. 

The annual scholarship will support the cost of tuition for students who meet JCC's USA Scholarship program criteria and are majoring in science with an interest in pre-pharmacy or pre-medical studies.

In 2013, Spicer endowed the Thelma K. McAuliffe-Spicer USA Scholarship in memory of his mother.

The USA Scholarship awards up to the full New York state resident tuition, currently $4,630 per year, for two years of study to seniors graduating in the top 20% of their class from an accredited high school in JCC’s service area. Since its inception in 1979, the USA Scholarship program has provided over $8 million to over 3,500 JCC students.

Sheridan Spicer, an area resident most of his life, was born in 1903 in Wellsville and graduated from Olean High School and the University of Buffalo School of Pharmacy.

Spicer was employed as a pharmacist by Wallace Davis in 1938. The association evolved into a partnership of the Davis Drug Stores, one in Jamestown and one in Falconer. The association continued for 27 years until Spicer retired in 1965. He was a charter member and past president of the Falconer Rotary Club and was a 40-year member of Moon Brook Country Club.  He died in 2002 at age 99.
