"For me, JCC is like family"I think of Johnston Community College like family.
As the College’s first student government association president, a member of the school’s first associate degree graduating class, a former College employee, and a current JCC trustee, I’ve followed the College’s growth with interest over the past 40 years.
I’m a firm believer in the mission of community colleges. I think the educational opportunities community colleges provide for working parents raising children is the institution’s greatest asset.
I went to Johnston Community College primarily because of the schedule and the short traveling distance from home. It was a matter of convenience in place and time and allowed me to get more education on a schedule that fit in with my family.
As we go through life and our circumstances change, our needs for certain knowledge also changes. The community college is so accessible and enables us to add to our learning experiences as we need them.
