Members of the Friday Morning Networking Group, an organization of business leaders from Jamestown and surrounding communities, met recently at Jamestown Community College to tour the college's new science center.
Accompanying the group was Mayor Sam Teresi and Matthew Hanley, executive assistant to the mayor.
Opened in the fall of 2011, JCC's Science Center is a candidate for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design silver standard certification and is a showplace for sustainability in building design and operation.

The center features state-of-the-art classrooms, labs and prep rooms for courses in biology, biotechnology, chemistry and geology, as well as a student study area, loft lounge, greenhouse and vegetative roof.
