126 Years of Service

Joe Jordan, Johnnie Humphrey and Huey Singleton
Joe Jordan, associate professor of mathematics, began teaching at John Tyler Community College in 1968. Huey Singleton, assistant professor of administration of justice, arrived in 1973. And, Johnnie Humphrey, associate professor of child care, entered her classroom in 1974.
Each has taught for more than 40 consecutive years at John Tyler Community College, and they will all retire this year.
Jordan, Singleton and Humphrey all came to Tyler soon after the College opened in 1967, a time when the community college concept was new in Virginia. Over the years, the three have worked for a number of presidents, witnessed a fire on the Chester Campus in 1988, and watched the role of the College in the community expand.
The College’s Faculty Association recently described them as “forever a part of the heart and soul of the College,” and that is certainly true. They will forever a part of the history of John Tyler Community College. Watch the video to hear more of their stories.
