- High School: Skaneateles, Class of 2016
- Major: Humanities & Social Sciences with an Honors minor
Less than a year ago Jonathon Mecomber jumped in Skaneateles Lake while wearing his cap and gown in celebration of his high school graduation. This summer he’ll earn his degree from OCC.
Mecomber planned to attend a community college in Pennsylvania but a health condition kept him close to him. Coming to OCC worked out well. “I like it here. I’ve been surprised to learn how many high-achieving students there are here.”
Next month Mecomber will be inducted into international honor society Phi Theta Kappa. In the summer he’ll take his final two classes, then transfer to SUNY Binghamton where he plans to major in Political Science with concentrations in International Relations and/or Politics and Law. His career goal is a government position related to Foreign Affairs or Law.
Mecomber is grateful for his time on the OCC campus. “It worked well for me. The pace here was perfect because I have a somewhat clear vision of what I want to do.”
