Two JCC Students Receive SUNY Chancellor’s Award
Jamestown Community College students Candice Mozes and Carrie Anne Tredo are among 180 students from 61 campuses honored by the State University of New York as part of the 2022 Chancellor’s Awards for Student Excellence.
The awards are the highest honor awarded to SUNY students who have best demonstrated academic excellence and leadership.
“Now more than ever, it is time to celebrate the accomplishments of our students who have helped one another get through this global pandemic and focus on getting the most out of their college education, and this year’s CASE winners are at the top of the class,” said Deborah F. Stanley, SUNY interim chancellor. “It is my great honor to celebrate the fortitude, leadership, and achievements of this year’s winners, and I applaud their hard work and desire to do more for their campuses and fellow students. I, for one, can’t wait to see what they do next.”
The Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence was created in 1997. Each year, campus presidents establish a selection committee, which reviews exemplary members of their colleges who are graduating. Nominees are forwarded to the chancellor’s office and are subject to a second round of review. Finalists are then recommended to the chancellor to become recipients of the Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence.
Mozes will graduate this weekend with an associate’s degree in Applied Science for Nursing. Her selection for CASE is in honor of her accomplishments in leadership, campus involvement, and academic excellence. While a student at JCC, Mozes was a student worker in the admissions office, resident assistant with the Residence Life program, student ambassador, member of the Nursing Club, and secretary for Student Senate.
In 2019, Mozes also earned an associate’s degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences for Psychology. She has a passion for helping others and looks forward to a career in the nursing field.
Tredo is a December 2021 graduate of JCC with an associate’s degree in Addictions Counseling. Her CASE selection is awarded based on her academic excellence, leadership, and community service. A dean’s list student, Tredo maintained a 4.0 GPA each semester.
During her time at JCC, Tredo participated in the Chautauqua Addictions Services Leadership Development Program, which led to a volunteer opportunity with the Hope and Healing Conference. She was hired by one of the agencies she met at a meet and greet that was conducted at the conclusion of the development program.
