August 3, 2018


OVERLAND PARK, KAN. (August 3, 2018) – Johnson County Community College welcomed Rob M. Wyrick as the new Director of the Johnson County Community College Foundation in July.

As Director of the JCCC Foundation, Mr. Wyrick will help lead JCCC’s efforts to provide access to higher education for our entire community through more than $1.2 million per year in student scholarships and secure important community support for nationally recognized visual and performing arts programs at the Carlsen Center and the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, national-championship athletic programs and a variety of academic and continuing education programs.

Additionally, Mr. Wyrick will play a key leadership role in the Campaign for Tomorrow, a major gifts initiative that is transforming the JCCC campus, positioning it to serve the needs of today’s students.

“I’m honored to be joining the Johnson County Community College family. JCCC has positioned itself as one of the top higher-education institutions in the country, not to mention the tremendous impact the broad range of JCCC programs and services have on our local community. For decades the JCCC Foundation, though the generosity of our donors, has helped support and advance the mission of JCCC. As we look to the future, I am excited to help continue to identify and build partnerships that support the success of our students, our faculty and our community,” said Wyrick.

He joins the JCCC Foundation after most-recently helping lead the Olathe Health Charitable Foundation and previously serving Kansas City nonprofit institutions such as Camp Fire, Wildwood Outdoor Education Center and the YMCA of Greater Kansas City.
