Michael Jason

Michael J. Jason of Crown Point is awarded the College’s annual Outstanding Associate Graduate Award at the Associate level by President Joseph L. Kennedy.

The award recognizes students enrolled in two-year programs who have excelled in their academics and other areas of campus life. Each semester, Jason has been on both the Dean’s List and President’s Honors list each of his four semesters at the College. The President’s List is the College’s highest level of achievement for one semester that honors full-time students who earn a semester grade point average (GPA) of 3.75 or higher on a 4.0 scale. He also received a Certificate of Academic Achievement from the Office of Opportunity Programs.

“Michael has an outstanding character, is an exceptional student, puts every ounce of energy he has into all of his course work and projects, and volunteers in many campus events with a kind and giving attitude,” said Maureen Maiocco, professor and director of the Early Childhood degree program. “I can’t think of a better role model for young children to have. I know he will inspire his future students in the most important life lessons: to always believe in yourself despite life’s challenges, and to treat others with care and kindness.”

A member of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) and the Chi Alpha Epsilon Honor Societies, Jason was elected Student Senate and Treasurer for the Early Childhood Club. During his senior year, he took on a leadership role in PTK and served as Vice President of Scholarship.  He also volunteered at the St. Lawrence Early Childhood Conference and student-taught at a local Head Start and at St. Mary’s in Canton.

Jason completed the New York State Office of Children and Family Services requirements for identifying and reporting child abuse, maltreatment and neglect. He attended and completed training dealing with topics such as helping children cope with grief and loss and early childhood science literacy.

In addition to his commitments related to his major, Jason was a member of the College’s gaming club and served as Vice President of the Outdoor Adventures Club his freshman year.
