A Place That Changes Lives
At John Tyler Community College, we spend each and every day helping our students reach their goals. It’s not just what we do, it’s who we are. We are a college that’s helping Marshall Maloney pursue his goal of working in the field of mechanical engineering technology. We are a community that’s offering Marilyn Powell the opportunity to start a new career. We are faculty and staff who are opening new doors for Malika Muhammad as she works toward her dream of becoming a social worker so she can help others. These are only a few of the stories that inspire us to do everything we can to help our students grow and our community thrive.

Reaching Out to Legislators
On January 31 and February 15, our 2017 student delegation met with some of the legislators who serve the John Tyler Community College service region. During those meetings, our students shared their stories and discussed how John Tyler Community College has impacted their lives and benefits the community.

Meet our 2017 student delegation to the General Assembly.
