Batavia, New York —The Genesee Community College Foundation is pleased to announce Stafford residents Rick and Jane Scott have been named chairpersons of Encore 2011, the annual holiday celebration that supports student scholarships at Genesee Community College. The Scotts would like to invite community residents to “A Winter Wonderland” at Encore 2011 on Tuesday, December 13, 2011. The festivities begin with a Gala Reception and continue with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) performing in the Stuart Steiner Theatre at the College’s Batavia Campus.
Chairpersons Rick and Jane Scott are looking forward to this year's Encore gala, “We have been attending Encore for many years, and it is hard to pinpoint what the best part of the evening is - the beautiful music, the food, the friends you see, the people you meet or knowing that it all benefits the scholarship programs for students at GCC. It is always a magical evening!”
Mrs. Scott is Branch Manager/Assistant Vice President of Five Star Bank in Batavia. She serves on the United Way Board as chairperson and co-chair of the United Way Day of Caring. She also serves on the United Memorial Medical Center’s Gala Committee and the Chamber of Commerce Gala Committee, as well as on several committees for the Genesee County ARC. She has worked with GCC proudly serving on the Wolcott J. Humphrey Symposium Committee. Mrs. Scott is a member of the Batavia Rotary and a 2004 graduate of Leadership Genesee. In 2011, she received the YWCA Fabulous Female Award.
Mr. Scott has been a long time farmer who worked hard for many years, and is now lucky enough to watch his nine grandchildren grow up, which keeps him very busy. Rick also enjoys building things and donating his time and energy to various charities. Together, Rick and Jane have four children and have been married 38 years.
Proceeds from Encore support the Genesee Community College Foundation Scholarship Fund. The Foundation would like to thank Five Star Bank, the lead corporate benefactor, for its continued support of Encore.
