JAMESTOWN - High school students throughout southwestern New York were recognized as Students of the Year in Jamestown Community College's College Connections program at the close of the 2011-2012 academic year.
JCC honored the students, who were chosen by their schools, during a special reception in June. In selecting the students of the year, schools were asked to consider College Connections participants who had embraced the challenges of completing college level work while in high school and demonstrated resourcefulness, integrity, and dedication.
College Connections, JCC's concurrent enrollment program with regional high schools, is accredited by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships. JCC partners with over 40 high schools and BOCES centers within JCC's service area to offer nearly 60 different college courses.
