JCC and Buffalo State College will co-host the 48th Annual University Photographers' Association of America Technical Symposium at JCC June 22-26.

Fifty-three university photographers from across the U.S. and Canada will spend the week at JCC attending educational and inspirational presentations by some of the world's leading photographers. This year's symposium theme is “green.”

Marilyn Zagora, vice president and dean of academic affairs, and Eileen Goodling, vice president and dean of student development, have announced the names of those students who were awarded degrees or certificates from the Jamestown and Cattaraugus County campuses in May 2009.

A total of 448 students earned degrees and certificates. One student earned two degrees and three students earned a degree and a certificate. Sixteen students graduated with highest honors, representing a 4.0 grade point average.

Auditions for the JCC Uncommoners' fall musical production, The Producers, will be held June 22 and 23, beginning at 7 p.m., in Scharmann Theatre on JCC's Jamestown Campus.

Information on the auditions can be obtained by calling JCC theatre director Robert Schlick, 716.338.1153.

“The JCC Uncommoners are privileged to be the first company in the area to present the show,” said Schlick. “One reviewer called The Producers `the funniest show on the planet!'”

The JCC Alumni Association honored 14 “Alumni Nurses of Distinction” recently.

The May issue of Aviation Digest, a buying guide for general and corporate aircraft and services, contains a feature on JCC's professional piloting degree program.

The monthly publication is distributed to airports along the East Coast, to airplane dealers throughout the country, and to subscribers.

The article outlines curricular components of the degree and career opportunities for graduates of JCC's program.

Sixty students were awarded degrees or certificates from JCC's Jamestown and Cattaraugus County campuses in August 2013. Nine students earned high honors (3.50-3.99 GPA) and three students earned honors (3.25-3.49 GPA).

JCC's Jamestown Campus will host two basketball instructional shooting clinics in October. The clinics, held from noon to 5 p.m. in the Physical Education Complex, will be conducted by JCC head men's basketball coach Michael Cordovano with assistance from JCC players and coaches.

The October 20 clinic is open to elementary and junior high boys and girls. High school boys and girls are invited to participate in a clinic on October 27. The registration fee is $25. Participants should pack a lunch or plan to purchase pizza and a drink at JCC.
