Community Support

Community leaders actively support Jefferson and its critical mission to provide access to higher education and to support the region’s economic development efforts.

“The time is now for schools like Jefferson Community & Technical College. A high school degree is just not cutting it and people are turning to JCTC. That is why the attention and enthusiasm around JCTC is unparallel and well deserved.”

- Louisville Metro Mayor Greg Fischer

“With access to fewer public funds, colleges like Jefferson are depending on business and industry to step up to the plate to ensure that students are able to received state-of-the-art training. We simply can’t take it for granted any more.  The best way business and industry can help ensure that tomorrow’s graduates are the employees we want to hire, is to get involved with JCTC and support it.

– Stephen A. Williams, Norton Healthcare
