Five JCC students participated in the annual SUNY Model European Union Simulation (SUNYMEU) held earlier this month at the University of Limerick in Ireland.

Aubrey Richir from JCC's Jamestown Campus and Melissa Graves, Mariah Wild, Amber Cheladyn, and Chad Austin from the Cattaraugus County Campus were accompanied by JCC faculty members Gregory Rabb and Martha Zenns. The JCC students represented Sweden and Latvia.

JCC's course on the EU simulation is taught via interactive television technology between the Jamestown and Olean campuses.

JCC's Jamestown Campus recently hosted a regional workshop for the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians (NAPBIRT).

NAPBIRT, the largest non-profit international educational association dedicated to the advancement of the craft of band instrument repair, sponsors regional workshops throughout the country but the JCC event was the first for this area.

“The regional workshop is a great resource for people who want to share and better their craft,” said Bill Eckstrom, an adjunct music faculty member at JCC and workshop presenter.

Rehearsals have begun for Of Mice and Men, which will be staged in JCC's Scharmann Theatre March 12-20.

The cast features several current JCC students: Jason Farrar of Dunkirk, Louis DeCarlo of Gowanda, Stephan Howell and Tony Taylor of Jamestown, Adam Hughes and Megan Lindahl of Lakewood, and Aaron Puvel of Salamanca. Dan Callahan and Skip Anderson will also perform.

The JCC Uncommoners will hold auditions from 7 to 9 p.m. on June 7 and 8 for The Who's Tommy. Auditions are held in Scharmann Theatre on JCC's Jamestown Campus.

Performances will be held November 4-6, 12-13, and 19-20 at 8 p.m. and on November 14 at 2 p.m.

Highest honors, representing a grade point average of 4.0, were earned by: A.S. Computer Science - Loretta Zaoutis of Wallkill.

Cruise In at the College, featuring classic cars, will be held on JCC's Jamestown Campus from noon to 5 p.m. on August 8.

The event will be held in the James Ave. parking lot on the campus. Proceeds benefit the JCC cheerleading program.

Classic cars and other vehicles are welcome at the cruise in. A $5 per car donation is appreciated. Dash plaques will be given to the first 100 cars and people's choice trophies will be presented to the top five vote getting vehicles. Cars and vehicles newer than 1990 are judged separately.

JCC signed a transfer articulation agreement with SUNY Potsdam recently.

JCC students who graduate from JCC with an Associate in Science degree in computer science are guaranteed acceptance into SUNY Potsdam's bachelor's degree program in computer science. Under the agreement, students can pursue a concentration in either computer science or information systems.

To address the needs of international students as well as regional students for whom English is not a first language, JCC will introduce courses within a new English language instruction (ELI) curriculum this fall.

Three fall semester courses focusing on composition, reading, and speaking/listening will be offered at JCC's Jamestown Campus as well as the college's North County Center in Dunkirk.

A self-portrait in airbrush by JCC sophomore Baca Potts was one of 27 works selected statewide for inclusion in the Best of the State University of New York exhibition.

Potts's work was chosen from entries in the spring SUNY Student Art Exhibition which was held earlier this year at SUNY Plaza. The Best of SUNY exhibition showcases the most compelling works of art made by students attending SUNY campuses.

The Best of SUNY exhibition is on display through September 24 at the State Museum in Albany.


A total of 566 students were named to the dean's list for the spring 2010 semester at JCC's Jamestown and Cattaraugus County campuses. The students named to the list earned at least a 3.50 average, equal to a B plus or better, in 12 or more semester hours of study.
