Remembrance: Jill Ladas, retired MCC employee

Jill spent the first part of her 27 years as an MCC employee on the MCC-Blue River campus, where she was a part-time academic advisor and part-time public information coordinator. She eventually moved to the MCC-Longview campus as the community outreach manager. Jill helped create Longview’s Flights of Fancy mega-kite festival that’s held each spring.

A celebration of Jill’s life will be held Saturday, Jan. 14, at 10 a.m. at Longview Funeral Home, 12700 S. Raytown Road, Kansas City.
