Jamestown, N.Y.— Jamestown Business College (JBC) will soon begin the next session of its leadership program designed for promising high school seniors in Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Warren counties. JBC’s Leadership Launch with Assemblyman Andrew Goodell, now in its fourth year, is slated to begin October 8.
As part of the program, nominated seniors participate with Assemblyman Goodell and JBC administration and faculty in a series of leadership activities. The five-week program, which will include a variety of interactive sessions, will provide students with the opportunity to learn more about their own leadership capabilities.
JBC President, David Conklin, is excited for the next round of the program to begin. “We have received a great response to the program from our area high school teachers and counselors,” he said. “Since the start of the program in 2011, we have seen the participation increase each year. We always end up with a great group of students.”
Since its start, the program has served students from the following school districts: Allegany-Limestone, Brocton, Cassadaga Valley, Cattaraugus-Little Valley, Chautauqua Lake, Dunkirk, Ellicottville, Falconer, Forestville, Fredonia, Frewsburg, Jamestown, Maple Grove, Olean, Panama, Randolph, Ripley, Salamanca, Silver Creek, Southwestern, and Westfield.
