Summertime at JKCP is right around the corner. A lot is running through the heads of students coming to JKCP this summer and same with parents sending their child to JKCP. One thing going through everyone's brain is "who will I meet this summer at JKCP?" We cannont tell you everyone you will specifically be meeting this summer but what we can tell is who your residential directors will be during your time. Now without further ado here is the starting line of the 2014 JKCP Residential Directors Team:
