Educational Success Is A Key Economic Component

February 12, 2012
By John Garfoot - JCC vice president and dean of administration , The Post-Journal

The area of education was something that was among the goals discussed by the Education Action Team within the framework of the strategic plan in mid-2011. Jennifer Satalino and I met with Mayor Teresi in early August to discuss the direction in which this action team would move in the next few years. Mayor Teresi is very passionate about education in this community. The first thing on his agenda was to express his pride in Jamestown High School and Jamestown Community College. Mr. Teresi also mentioned that he felt that education is a key economic driver in any community. It's a key economic component for a number of reasons and some of the reasons that he talked about oddly enough dovetail very well with one of the sessions during the State University of New York strategic planning process. This belief will be reflected in the work of the action team.
