JCCC Stories

Serving the community

April 29, 2018


JCCC provides experience-based education to its students, allowing them to gain real-world training while delivering a variety of services to the community.

At the intersection of education and community, you’ll find Johnson County Community College. That’s because JCCC provides experience-based education to its students, allowing them to gain real-world training while delivering a variety of services to the Johnson County community at the same time.

JCCC’s Cosmetology Salon, Dental Hygiene Clinic and Pastry Shop are three initiatives that enable students to harness their newly acquired skills while contributing to the community as a whole. Here’s the scoop on each:  

School of Cosmetology Salon

Want to spruce up your hair? Check. Do your nails need attention? Done. Looking for a skin care solution? Sure thing.

From haircuts and highlights to manicures and massages, the JCCC School of Cosmetology Salon is equipped to perform a wide range of services. Each and every service provided is executed by students under the supervision of a licensed cosmetology instructor. 

In addition to helping local students gain and perfect new skills, salon-goers receive all services at a discounted rate compared to standard salon prices. As an added bonus, students and employees with a current JCCC ID receive a 20 percent discount.

Learn more about the services provided at the School of Cosmetology Salon, and call 913-469-2390 to make an appointment today.

Dental Hygiene Clinic

When it comes to preventive dental care, look no further than the Dental Hygiene Clinic, which serves JCCC students, faculty and staff, and community members and their children.

Here’s how it works: The clinic starts accepting names for appointments at the beginning of each semester. Health questions, such as “When was your last cleaning?” and “Do you floss?” are asked up front. Then, students select patients according to their program requirements.

Just $10 covers a cleaning and X-rays.

Availability is limited – submit your name for consideration.

Pastry Shop

Located in Wylie Hospitality and Culinary Academy, JCCC’s mouth-watering pastry shop is open nearly every Friday when classes are in session from 3 to 5:30 p.m., or until the treats sell out. The pastries are freshly made by students in JCCC's pastry/baking certificate program, who are supervised by JCCC faculty. All proceeds from pastry sales support the students in the pastry/baking program.

Here's a sampling of what you may typically find at the pastry shop:

  • Yeast breads
  • Quick breads
  • Pies and tarts
  • Whole cakes and cake slices
  • Petit pastry
  • Chocolates and confections
  • Cookies
  • Seasonal pastries
