Johnson County Community College President Joe Sopcich Johnson County Community College President Joe Sopcich announced today in a message sent to faculty that he is retiring from the position effective July 1, 2020.
Sopcich became president of the school in June 2013, following more than two decades working in various roles at the college. He began at JCCC as executive director of the JCCC Foundation back in 1992. In 2007, he was promoted to vice president of institutional advancement and government affairs. He then moved on to roles as executive vice president of administrative services and chief financial officer before being tapped to succeed outgoing president Terry Calloway.
“In today’s world of community college leadership, serving for seven years is almost double the standard length of time one serves in this position,” Sopcich wrote. “So, I wanted to share with you my intent to resign as president effective July 1, 2020. In giving notice now, it will ensure a smooth transition. I can’t thank you enough for what you do to make this College the special place that it is.”
