BATAVIA — Benjamin Kaiser of Barker was one of 26 students from across Western New York who received an Outstanding Scholar Awards in Genesee Community College's Advanced Studies program. The awardees were honored at a ceremony and reception May 28 in the Stuart Steiner Theatre at Genesee's Batavia campus.

Advanced Studies is part of the College's ACE program, or Accelerated College Enrollment, and allows high school students the opportunity to earn college credit from Genesee while attending class within their high school. High school teachers approved as Genesee adjunct faculty teach all Advanced Studies courses. Some of the most enterprising young students earn enough transferable Advanced Studies credit to enter their first year of college as sophomores.

This year's Outstanding Scholars Award program featured a keynote address by Robert Knipe, a lifelong advocate of higher education and community colleges, and GCC's recently retired dean of learning technologies. Knipe reflected not only on his 23 years of service at GCC, but also starting his career as a teacher and being a community college graduate himself. He advised the students that success in any field demands preparation, creativity and hard work. Knipe continues his work as an educational consultant, and serving several regional civic organizations including playing the French horn with the Genesee Symphony Orchestra and the Batavia Concert Band.

"The Outstanding Scholars Awards Ceremony is always a wonderful evening as Advanced Studies students are recognized for their achievements with their families. Celebrating their hard work is one of the greatest pleasures of my job," Ed Levinstein, associate dean of the ACE Program said. "The ACE program really helps students with their professional growth and career success, while saving their parents significant tuition dollars."

The 26 finalists were selected from more than 165 nominations in the five subject areas of mathematics, science, social science, foreign language and English. As in years past, a committee of academic professionals from Genesee Community College selected the award winners.
