    Last Sunday, CASA of Johnson & Wyandotte Counties joined with CASA of Jackson County in the first ever Superhero 5k.  With over 125 volunteers and 1000 registered runners, the event raised nearly $40,000, making it Kansas City's most successful first-time running event.  HPA members were part of the fun. Some volunteered as registration helpers and course monitors, while others registered to run the race.  The event was held at Town Center Plaza in Leawood, Kansas.

    CASA, which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates, provides a voice for neglected and abused children who are under the protection of the Court.  For more information on volunteering or giving to CASA, visit CASA of Johnson County and Wyandotte or CASA of Jackson County.

    Get your costumes ready for next year's run!

    A two-person team from the ABA Approval Commission visited Johnson County Community College on April 21, 2014 to validate an extensive self-evaluation report submitted by JCCC in its request for re-approval of its Paralegal Studies Program.  After a day of meetings with JCCC leaders, faculty, current students, and alumni, Anita Tebbe, Paralegal Program Director, received news that the Commission recommends re-approval for another 7 years.  The recommendation will be sent to the ABA Standing Committee on Paralegals, and ultimately to the ABA House of Delegates for the final stamp of approval.

    Johnson County Community College’s Paralegal Studies Program, then under the leadership of Mike Pener, received its original ABA approval in 1980.  Since that time, JCCC has consistently met ABA Guidelines aimed at fostering high quality paralegal education and training.
