CCC Student Receives New York State Sheriff Association Scholarship

Monday, July 11, 2005

Plattsburgh… Clinton County Sheriff, David N. Favro, presented the 2005 New York State Sheriff Association Institute's scholarship to Clinton Community College student David Wojewodzic, Moriah, New York, at a luncheon held in his honor at the college. Joining David and his mother Janet Wojewodzic and step-father Brian Coburn for the occasion, were Dr. Maurice B. Hickey, President of CCC, Dr. James Brazil, V. P. Academic Affairs, John Mockry, Associate Professor and Coordinator of CCC's Criminal Justice Program, Major David J. Jock, Chief Deputy for Clinton County, Catherine Eloranto, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, and Carl Lutters, Professor of Psychology and Social Science Division Coordinator.


Wojewodzic graduated from CCC in May of 2005 earning an A.A.S. in Criminal Justice with a 3.7 G.P.A. and plans to transfer to Plattsburgh State University in the fall. Wojewodzic was the recipient of the 2005 Mildred P. Kelly Scholarship, which is awarded to the Most Outstanding Criminal Justice Graduate at Clinton. He was named to the Dean’s List all four semesters. 


Wojewodzic said, “ I think Clinton is one of the greatest places in the North Country to start college. It helps in the transition from high school to college, I couldn’t have imagined going to a four-year college first. My cousin, Joe John Wojewodzic was in one of the first graduating classes at CCC, he went on to get a master’s degree in counseling, and he always tells me to keep on going with my education. He loved Clinton and said it is a great place to start. I feel the same way; it’s a great institution. I loved it.”


This fall, Wojewodzic will begin his studies in Criminal Justice at Plattsburgh State University.
