While BNSF (and BN prior) has a strong presence at NARS (JCCC), I'm curious to know one thing:
Who employs the classroom instructors at NARS?
NARS's website implies all instructors are railroad employees; which begs the question who pays them, BNSF of JCCC?
BNSF railroad pumped a lot of money in Johnson County Community College, and in return got it's own wing (NARS)... By my opinion the best looking and biggest JC I have ever seen. It looks more like some high end university.
