Stone and Executive Director of the Jefferson Foundation, Benjamin Foster, on August 24, 2021.

SeaComm is committed to Jefferson Community College’s mission and the noble work they provide in developing educated talent that we as an employer depend on to fill our human resources needs. This perpetual SeaComm Scholarship, in partnership with JCC, will ensure that resource is available for many years to come."
