Several JCC faculty members were honored with Applauding Participation in the Learning Environment (ApPLE) awards this fall.

ApPLE recognizes scholarly research, grant awards, professional honors, creative presentations, and publication credits achieved by faculty. Recipients included:

JCC updated its transfer articulation agreements with UPMC Chautauqua and Bradford Regional Medical Center recently.

The agreements facilitate pre-planning for a career in radiologic technology as well as the transfer of credits from both hospitals’ programs to JCC.

Students can improve their likelihood of admission to either radiologic technology program by completing specified JCC courses prior to applying to UPMC Chautauqua or BRMC. The courses can be used toward meeting requirements for JCC’s Associate in Applied Science degree in individual studies.

JCC has received a $90,000 grant from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation to conduct a feasibility study on potential new academic and workforce programs.

The programs – identified as opportunities to train individuals for viable job growth in emerging, current, and innovative industry sectors – focus on agribusiness, culinary and hospitality management, robotics and automation, and clean energy.

International student enrollment at JCC is at a record high this fall with 53 international students representing 25 different nations and six of the seven continents. 

JCC welcomed its first students ever from four nations – Italy, the Ivory Coast, the Netherlands, and Thailand for the fall semester. While 50 of the international students are enrolled at the Jamestown Campus, three are enrolled at JCC’s Cattaraugus County Campus in Olean.

The JCC women’s softball team will hold a Prospects Program from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Sundays, November 10 to December 15.

The program, open to all ages, will be held in the Physical Education Complex on JCC’s Jamestown Campus. The registration fee is $100 for all six sessions or $25 for each individual session. The first sessions will focus on pitching and catching.

Each attendee should bring a glove, athletic apparel, and indoor athletic shoes.

Jenna Caskey of Sinclairville, a sophomore outside hitter for the Jamestown Community College women's volleyball team, has been named by the National Junior College Athletic Association to its All-Western New York Athletic Conference all-conference team.

Seven JCC men’s soccer team members were named recently by the National Junior College Athletic Association to its All-Western New York Athletic Conference teams.

Applications for the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Academy will be accepted from January 1 until April 15, 2020.

The academy, created in 1978 in partnership with JCC, provides training for individuals interested in careers as police officers.

 Successful graduates earn up to 45 college credits and a certificate of completion from New York state’s certified basic police training course, a legal requirement for municipal police officers.

JCC will hold auditions from 6-9 p.m. November 18-20 for its spring productions, La Cage aux Folles and Pump Boys and Dinettes.

Auditions will be held in Scharmann Theatre.

Todd Wagner will direct La Cage aux Folles. Adam Owens will direct Pump Boys and Dinettes.

In an effort to strengthen its partnership with Jamestown Public Schools to prepare students for life after graduation, JCC is providing a variety of college readiness services at Jamestown High School through a pilot program.

Carmen Perez, the career development liaison for the JCC/JHS partnership which is located in a collaboration space in the JHS library, helps JHS students -- with a special focus on Latino students – explore college and career pathway opportunities. Ms. Perez also spends one day each week at JCC’s Jamestown Campus, guiding recent Latino JHS graduates.
