Your Johnson County Community College admissions representatives are here to help introduce you to the college. If you are looking to get started at JCCC, Casey, Melisa and Teresa will be happy to assist you at off campus recruiting events or while you’re visiting campus.
Meet Casey Wallace
As the campus visit coordinator, I am responsible for planning campus visits at the college, along with organizing group and individual visits and tours. I supervise the JCCC Cav leaders and serve on several committees. You are welcome to come and visit me to discuss your future at JCCC. I will answer your general questions and introduce you to the processes on campus such as admission, financial aid, scholarships. If you have questions about programs and other opportunities, I can help direct you to the appropriate areas and contacts to make sure that your questions are all answered.
You can contact me by phone or email with general questions. I encourage you to make an appointment with Melisa or myself if you will be visiting campus so that we can provide full attention to your questions and help you reach your goals.
I have worked in JCCC admissions for eight years. My bachelor of science degree is from Northwest Missouri State University in public administration which I received in 2003 . In 2007 I received my master’s of Science degree in higher education administration from the University of Kansas.
Meet Teresa Leland
As an adult student recruiter, I will visit with students looking to further their education and assist them with the admission process. I look forward to meeting with students and helping them get started in the right direction. You are welcome to contact me with questions throughout your time at JCCC.
I am involved with the Kansas City Collegiate Admissions Professionals (KCCAP) group and attend Educational Fairs at local businesses interested in promoting the importance of education to their employees. I also work closely with the selective admission and cooperative programs here at JCCC.
I have worked at JCCC since 2004 in both credit and continuing educational positions. I graduated from JCCC and then went on to complete my Organizational Management and Ethics degree from Oklahoma Wesleyan University in 2010.
Meet Melisa Jimenez
As the diversity recruiter for JCCC I will visit with students of diverse backgrounds and assist them in their higher education choice. My territory is Western Kansas in addition to Wyandotte, Sedgwick, Lyon and Shawnee counties in Kansas. I make bi-annual visits to high schools and attend community and recruitment events throughout Kansas. I am fluent in English and Spanish so I would like to use my skills to serve this certain population to assist in the transition to college.
I will also be involved in both on campus and community organizations that provide support for current high school and college students, created with the multicultural student in mind.
This is my first year working at JCCC. In 2007 I received my bachelor of arts from the University of Kansas and recently graduated with my master’s of art from the University of St. Mary, Leavenworth.
