Vision Statement

Find your healthy place: Create space for wellness in your life.

The Wellness Committee’s vision statement appears on the College’s 2014 wellness T-shirt. KCC employees were encouraged to take photos of themselves wearing their T-shirts in their own healthy places or showing how they create space for wellness in their lives. Submitted photos were then added to the Wellness T-Shirts gallery on our Wellness Photos page.
