The Chautauqua County Basketball Officials Board 39 Scholarship Fund was established to help student athletes further their education. Since 1989, this scholarship has been awarded to at least one male and one female Chautauqua County High School graduate attending Jamestown Community College and playing basketball. In addition to being enrolled full-time at the college, students must also comply with academic requirements that coincide with athletic eligibility. The 2013 recipients were: Brook Draggett (Cassadaga Valley), Taylor Storer (Cassadaga Valley), Brendan Bentham (Pine Valley) and Adam Walker (Clymer). Students interested in applying for this award may visit the JCC Financial Aid Office. All applications are due Dec. 1. A committee made up of representatives from JCC and the Chautauqua County Basketball Officials Board 39 review all applications.
