Wylie Hospitality and Culinary Academy
50th Anniversary

Presented by Hospitality and Culinary Arts Students.

For five decades, various citizens of Johnson County have dedicated their time and passion to transform countless students’ lives through education—and in doing so helped strengthen our community. On this day, our Hospitality and Culinary Arts students will treat our current and past JCCC Board of Trustees members to a delicious meal prepared at our very own Wylie Hospitality and Culinary Academy.

The JCCC Board of Trustees has guided the College’s growth with ethical policymaking since the first tap of the gavel brought its inaugural meeting to order in September 1967. Under its tutelage, the JCCC campus has grown to meet the evolving needs of our students and community.

Just check out these changes that have been made over the last 50 years, as JCCC has grown from: 

  • Six core buildings to 24 distinct campus facilities dedicated to student learning and resources, including a Police Academy, the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art and the Hiersteiner Child Development Center 
  • 1,380 enrolled students to 18,373 enrolled students
  • 68 full-time faculty to 319 full-time and 537 part-time and adjunct faculty
  • Traditional classroom learning to evening, online, hybrid and weekend class options

In that time, we’ve also expanded to offer:

  • Continuing education opportunities for area professionals
  • Education outreach through Johnson County Adult Education
  • Youth arts programming
