JCCC wastes $120,000 on “image consultant” after losing in federal court over expulsions
This college’s repeat, illegal behavior is well known and well-proven in Kansas City. Yet, leaders at Johnson County Community College continue to go out of their way to be all the more unethical. Just after being scolded by a federal judge that they illegally expelled four nursing students, JCCC is now spending over $100,000 of the taxapayers’ money to focus on its “image” and “brand.”

“Re-branding” — JCCC spends $120,000 of taxpayers’ money
on an “image consultant”
Actions come directly after being caught breaking the law
by illegally expelling four students

Correction from previous Email: In my previous Email, I quoted “diversity” director Carmaletta Williams and stated that a not-kid-friendly play was being performed at The Coterie Theatre. Carmaletta Williams later sent out an Email, stating that the particular play was atTheUnicorn Theatre, not The Coterie.
At a recent board meeting of the Johnson County Community College Board, President Terry Calaway along with the UNANIMOUS support of the elected board members moved to spend $120,000 on an “image consultant” to “re-brand” the college.
This was done almost immediately after being told by a federal judge that the college broke the law by illegally expelling four students and that JCCC leaders denied these students due process rights.
These wasteful actions are supported by liberal JCCC candidates Greg Musil, Jon Stewart, and Don Weiss.
