JCC Featured Honors Program Student - April 2015

Lacy J. Hinkle, of Carthage, is the featured Jefferson Community College (JCC) Honors Program student for the month of April. At Jefferson, Hinkle is a dual major studying chemical dependency and criminal justice. For one of her honors options, she conducted a real life case study of an active-duty soldier with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Hinkle also initiated, planned, marketed, and will assist in executing a 3-day PTSD awareness week in May at JCC in conjunction with Student Activities. After graduating from Jefferson, she plans to transfer to Syracuse University to major in criminal justice. 

The Jefferson Community College Honors Program offers students with exceptional academic skills the opportunity to receive enriched instruction within their current program of study. For the Honors Program, students select three courses within their curriculum, and enhance them as Honors Options. The option is based on a project agreed to by the student and a faculty member willing to work closely with the student to provide a unique and rewarding experience. Students also take the Honors Seminar, a unique inter-disciplinary course open only to program participants. The Seminar examines a single theme each semester and features guest speakers from a variety of disciplines and often includes some sort of field experience.

Successful program participants earn a prestigious Honors Graduate designation on their academic transcript for each Honors Option course. Students demonstrating excellent academic achievement in high school or who have completed 12 credit hours of college coursework are invited to apply for admission to the Honors Program.
