    Many Helping Hands

    The whole entire staff is always willing  to give that extra hand by opening doors, pushing students to their next class, moving laundry, fetching equiptment or just getting lunch for the class next door. There is always extra muscle to help lift or set up rooms for the next activity. It is nice to work with such a helpful staff.



  • "Call it folk music because it's all about relationships and stories." 


     On Wednesday, March 27th, 2019 Jo Kelly Students and staff enjoyed the music of  Richard Bruxvoort Colligan.
