WARREN, Pa. – It was a special day at the Warren County Career Center, as several WCCC students were honored with scholarships from Jamestown Business College.

Scholarships were awarded in three categories – Academic Progress Award, Entrepreneurship Award, and business as a Career Award.

Receiving the Academic Progress Awards were Mitchell Rossman, McKenzie Cyphert-Renninger, Macey Eyler, Carter Lookenhouse, Paige Dexter, and Kendra Chase, while Addison Downer-Rice and Tanner Carlson received the Entrepreneurship Awards, and Tristin McKee, Abigail Wilson, Erin Wilson, and Alessandra Tundel received the Business as a Career Awards.

All of the awards allow the students to attend JBC tuition-free for an associate’s degree.

“It’s a nice opportunity the Career Center gives us, for everything they’ve provided for us, these awards to further our education,” said Rossman.

JBC Admissions Associate Jordan Nicholson was on hand to present the awards to the students.

“Students are able to choose from six different options,” Nicholson explained.

Those associate degree options include Accounting, Digital Marketing, Hospitality Management, Information Technology, Marketing and Management and Medical Administration.

“We also offer a bachelor’s program in management,” Nicholson explained. “We’re so thrilled to be able to honor these Career Center students here today with the full associate’s degree scholarships.”

For the Business as a Career Award, students must have a career goal of being in the business industry.

For the Academic Progress Awards, students must strive for academic progress and demonstrate good citizenship and a strong work ethic.

For the Entrepreneurship Award, students must plan on owning or managing their own business and express a strong interest in combining their technical skills from WCCC with a business administration degree from JBC.

Candidates were submitted by their teachers.

“For the marketing department, we want to thank Mrs. (Cathie) Cummings,” Rossman said. “She has been very helpful to all of us.”
