GJCTC News

There's a lot happening in our vibrant and growing learning community! From school-wide announcements to special events taking place at one of our campuses, we’ll included all the latest here.

Veterans Holiday Brunch

Our staff and students are preparing a holiday brunch to honor our Veterans for their service to our country. It is on Thursday, December 7 at 11:00 a.m. in the Greater Johnstown Career and Technology Center cafeteria. If you would like to come, RSVP by Wednesday, November 22 to (814) 266.6073, extension 201. Please bring a canned good to the brunch to donate to a local food pantry. We look forward to seeing you there.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month at GJCTC

GJCTC’s Adult School of Cosmetology and High School Cosmetology Program invite you to help us raise money for breast cancer research. Beginning October 12, our students will be selling pink hair extensions for $3.00 and pink ribbon face painting for $1.00. The great news is that 100% of the proceeds will go to the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center in Windber. The hair extensions are not permanent, they require no glue, and you can remove them easily. It is very easy to support this cause! You can purchase your hair extension or face painting and have it put in/on right here at GJCTC one of the following ways:

  • Stop in to the adult education cosmetology salon anytime between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
  • Stop in the high school cosmetology salon anytime between 8:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. or 11:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m.
  • Call the adult education office at (814) 266.6073 x201 if you would like a student to come to your classroom or office area.

If you would like to purchase a hair extension for someone else, we will give you directions on how to put it in at home. We are encouraging all GJCTC staff, students, and tenants to join us in this worthwhile cause. Join everyone at GJCTC as we work together to support the fighters, admire the survivors, honor the taken, and never, ever give up hope!

Radio personality Brian Wolf from Cool 101.7 is supporting the cause!
