SPOTLIGHT ON ACHIEVEMENT
JCCC team of Honors and PTK students was one of 12 to advance to the finals of the Community College Innovation Challenge (CCIC), a national competition held virtually in June
Kate Boyer, Ashley ("Kat") Hooley Lickteig, Jacqueline Contreras, Jacquelyn White and faculty advisor Tara Karaim developed a novel solution to address the lack of accessibility to personal travel for mobility device users, such as those who use wheelchairs. Many rely on the assistance of another person to help them gain access to their device from their vehicle. The team wanted to create a way for these individuals to travel independently. Although the JCCC team did not place among the top three, each participant received a cash prize of $500.
