RAPAPORT... The Jewelers Vigilance Committee (JVC) will present Jewelers’ Security Alliance (JSA) president John J. Kennedy with the 2021 Stanley Schechter Award.

The accolade, which was established in 2002, recognizes industry leaders who have raised the jewelry community’s reputation through their dedication, ethics and integrity. Kennedy is a former assistant commissioner and deputy general counsel for the New York City Department of Investigation, and has been running JSA since 1992. The JVC will present the award at its 2021 Annual Event, which it will hold virtually this year on January 8, it said Tuesday.

JVC will also announce several new initiatives to support the industry’s success into 2021, it noted.

“We’re excited to offer an event that will allow attendees to join together for an afternoon of celebration and networking, as well as honor someone deserving from our industry with our Stanley Schechter award,” said JVC CEO Tiffany Stevens.
