Scattered throughout JWCC's modern campus facilities are timeless wooden benches that were crafted by Dr. Victor Hopper more than 25 years ago. With the desire to create inviting areas for students and visitors, the JWCC Foundation has established an interior bench project using the same classic Hopper design.

Benches can be adopted with a donation of $650. Those who make these donations receive a personalized plaque on the bench that they choose.
