HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Who's Who of Herkimer County Community College were recognized on Thursday for their hard work both in and out of the classroom.

The Who's Who is a national program honoring students at American junior colleges and is called one of the most prestigious awards in the academic community.

At HCCC, 15 students received awards, including a young man currently studying physical therapy. Jason Colenzo said he was chosen for his grades, but also his work ethic.

"Anything in life is passion," Colenzo said. "If you find something that you love, you're going to be successful, as long as you put your best foot forward and go above and beyond what the professor expects of you."

Criteria for a Who's Who award includes GPA, community involvement and participation in extracurricular activities.
