Several JCC student athletes have been recognized by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) for their achievements.

Students must achieve grade point average and athletic participation expectations to be recognized at regional and national levels.

NJCAA All Region III academic team members include:

JCC faculty members Gregory Rabb and Karen Weyant received the 2011 SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence.

Rabb received the award for excellence in teaching while Ms. Weyant was honored for excellence in scholarship and creative activities.

Faculty, librarians, and professional service employees who received the SUNY Chancellor's Award were honored with a certificate and cast bronze medallion. The awards are announced after a SUNY advisory committee reviews nominations from faculty, students, and colleagues throughout the 64-campus system.

Seven JCC students participated in the annual SUNY Model European Union Simulation (SUNYMEU) held earlier in the spring at SUNY New Paltz.

The simulation is sponsored by the SUNY Institute for European Union Studies and Simulations (IEUSS) and the SUNY Center for Global Affairs. JCC is represented on the IEUSS board of directors by associate professor of political science Greg Rabb.

E-waste recycling will be conducted at JCC's Jamestown Campus from 9 a.m. to noon on May 14.

The event, coordinated by JCC's sustainability committee in cooperation with Regional Computer Recycling and Recovery, will be held in the parking lot near the Arts and Sciences Center, off James Ave.

The New York State Electronic Equipment Recycling & Reuse Act requires that electronics – which may contain hazardous waste elements such as lead solder, mercury, cadmium, and beryllium -- must be recycled in an environmentally sound manner.

Works by 16 JCC students were honored with awards during the opening of the annual student art exhibition in the Weeks Gallery.

The exhibition featured 55 artists and presented 109 artworks selected from 247 submissions that include drawings, paintings, 2D and 3D design, sculpture, ceramic, mixed media, photography, digital media, and short documentary films.

Nearly 100 area high school students explored entrepreneurship in a recent half-day program titled “Be the Boss!” at JCC.

Tom Filsinger, whose entrepreneurial endeavors include Filsinger Games and Dark Menace Productions, delivered the keynote presentation as he discussed turning your passions into business success. Jamestown area entrepreneur Gary Lynn discussed the importance and value of sharing business success with your community. Students also heard Adam Mook of Erie-based Logistics Plus discuss finding global opportunities for your business.

JCC is one of 11 colleges and universities nationwide being recognized by University Business magazine's ‘Models of Efficiency' program.

JCC identified a solution to transition faculty contract processing from a paper-based system to a streamlined electronic system. The college's existing system called for special contracts with faculty who taught extra courses.

JCC rolled out the new system in phases beginning in summer 2010 with the whole system converted to the paperless system by January of this year.

Forests will be the focus of JCC's Earthfest, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 20 outside the Hamilton Collegiate Center on the Jamestown Campus.

The event, sponsored annually by JCC's Earth Awareness Club and the college program committee of the JCC Faculty Student Association, is free and open to the public.
