"Johnston County is extremely fortunate to have Johnston Community College"More than 30 years ago, I earned my associate’s degree in accounting from Johnston Community College. Today, I’m president and chief executive officer of KS Bank, a full-service community bank headquartered in Smithfield.
Since its establishment in 1969, JCC has offered hope for success for people with limited opportunities. JCC is affordable, convenient, and provided me the business knowledge I needed to succeed in the banking industry.
Through its degree programs and continuing education courses, JCC offers exceptional training opportunities for many of my employees at KS Bank. The knowledge they gain through the College fosters personal and professional growth. JCC is also an outstanding community partner with KS Bank and with many other businesses and industries in Johnston County.
Any community benefits by having a college in their community. Certainly, Johnston County is extremely fortunate to have Johnston Community College.
I’m Harold Keen and I’m a 1976 graduate of Johnston Community College.
