Updates from Johnson County Community College: In-demand careers

Shawnee Mission Post Sponsor - March 25, 2019 10:00 am

Johnson County Community College puts education within reach. Just ask the Twittersphere. Community college alumni from around the country – including JCCC – recently took to the platform to respond to the following prompt:

“Did you go to a community college? Quote tweet this and say which community college you attended and what you’re doing today. I’ll retweet as many as I can. People who attend community colleges deserve to be as proud as people who attend Harvard.”

Our former students came forward in droves to show just how far JCCC’s in-demand degrees, affordable tuition rates and flexible schedule options have taken them:

  • “I went to @JCCCtweet for a year and it was the smartest decision I have ever made. I am now a high school English teacher and encourage students to really consider time at a community college before they go to a four-year institution. Community college taught me so much.” – Ashley Agre‏
  • “I went to @JCCCtweet & currently serve as a Representative in the Kansas House.” – Brett Parker‏
  • “I went to @JCCCtweet. Today I have an MA in Christian Thought and I’m a youth minister at a church.” – Carter Baldwin
  • “I went to @JCCCtweet and now run a tech company.” – Walter Bleser‏
  • “Congresswoman.” – Sharice Davids
  • “I attended @JCCCtweet. Today I am the curator of collections at a local history museum.” – Shannon Hsu
  • “I’m an @JCCCtweet graduate. Current profession: Education and insurance defense lawyer @MVPLaw.” – Kelli Broers‏
  • “JCCC alums rock! Followed it up with KU & now I teach middle school.” – Leslie Schrader
  • “@JCCCtweet, advertising and marketing sales for @JCPRDparks and this entire thread is amazing and should be read by every high school student in the world.” – Kate Buenger‏
  • @JCCCtweet I work as a case manager for mental health clients.” – J. Craig Pittman
