Congrats to Jade Myers

Jade Myers
 Jade Myers of Canandaigua, a student at Finger Lakes Community College, was among the 257 students across New York state who were awarded the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence on April 4.

Myers will graduate in May with associate degrees in chemical dependency counseling and liberal arts. She plans to continue her education by transferring to a four-year college.

A member of Phi Theta Kappa, the national honor society for two-year colleges, Myers has also received two scholarships at FLCC: the Alumni Association Adult Student of Excellence Scholarship and the Charlotte Cowie Memorial Scholarship.

Myers thanked her professors for their encouragement. “I have been so influenced by several of my teachers. They support your own growth and creativity, and I love that. FLCC is just an amazing, supportive environment,” she said.

Myers founded an organization called Ravensgrin Commons,, to organize classes, events and exhibits that showcase local musicians, dancers and visual artists. She is a former member of the Silent Rhythm Dance Troupe and currently performs with the Tin Cup Gypsies.

The SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence acknowledges students who have combined academic excellence with other aspects of their lives, which may include leadership, campus involvement, community service, participation in the arts, or an athletic or career achievement.
