Jamestown Business College recognized the excellence of several Warren County Career Center students with scholarship offers.

Admissions Associate Jordan Nicholson presented awards to 11 career center students.

“I’m super excited for you,” Nicholson said. “This is a special opportunity to be recognized and see what all your accomplishments have brought you.”

The three different awards were: the Academic Progress Award, the Entrepreneurship Award, and the Business as a Career Award.

The Academic Progress Award recognizes students who “strive for academic progress, and demonstrate good citizenship and strong work ethic,” Nicholson said.

That award was presented to Carter Lookenhouse, Mitchell Rossman, Macey Eyler, Kendra Chase, and Paige Dexter.

The Entrepreneurship Award recognizes students who “plan on owning or managing their own businesses,” she said. “Candidates should express a strong interest in combining their technical skills from WCCC with a solid business administration degree from JBC.”

Students winning that award were: Addison Downor Rice and Tanner Carlson.

The final award recognizes students who “have a career goal of being in the business industry,” she said.

Those winners were: Abigail Wilson, Alessandra Tundel, Erin Wilson, and Tristian McKee.

Each of the awards entitles the student to earn an associate degree at JBC “tuition-free.”

“We are a private college… with more of that hands-on attention and personalization,” Nicholson said.

JBC offers six associate degree program options in business administration and a bachelor’s degree in management.

“It’s a nice opportunity that the career center and Jamestown Business College have offered us to further our education,” Rossman said. “Marketing Teacher Mrs. (Cathie) Cummings has been very helpful to all of us.”
