“We have the real possibility of being the best in the country,” said Jason Arnett, who worked on the catering project and now is supervisor of the college’s coffee bar operations. “But I’ll take being in the top three in the nation for now.”
Beyond Bounds Electric! took place on Oct. 18, 2014. It raised money to support the college’s Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art.Behind JCCC in the middle-sized schools competition was the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. It took silver and Eastern Washington University won bronze.
