Jefferson Community College student Courtnee Denton of Fort Drum is receiving the United Way of NNY's Joseph P. Landauer Memorial Scholarship for the 2017-18 academic year.
She is liberal arts major who plans to transfer to a four-year college to receive a degree in political science with a minor in sustainability. She is the student member of the JCC Board of Trustees and a student ambassador for student services. She plays on the college's soccer and softball teams.
"I am extremely honored to receive this award," wrote Courtnee. "Joseph P. Landauer was a veteran of the U.S. Army. My father is currently deployed and serving as a CW4 helicopter pilot in the Army. So I can understand the sacrifice it takes to serve our country."
