JCCC Proudly Salutes Veterans

At JCCC, we place high importance on showing appreciation to members of the military, both past and present. We honor them as patriots, and applaud their willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. There are many ways our College community expresses gratitude to our veterans.

Pay It Forward Scholarship for Veterans

This scholarship provides financial assistance to help veterans reach their academic goals. It’s a generous and practical way to say “thank you” to those who have selflessly fought for our freedoms.

Kansas Veterans Oral History Project

In 2018, JCCC’s Kansas Studies Institute and Veteran Services received a grant from Kansas Humanities for documenting oral histories of Vietnam Era veterans. 

Veterans Week - 10-Year Retrospective

For the last 10 years, the JCCC Veteran and Military Student Resource Center has collaborated with campus and community partners to present many events to honor veterans and create campus awareness of veteran and military culture and accomplishments. 

We have some awesome videos and highlights of these wide-ranging events, from student veteran panels to distinguished guests to veteran oral history projects.
