KINGMAN – Mohave Community College is teaming with the Kingman Unified School District to help show the community all the college and career opportunities available to them.

The college will have representatives at the KUSD College and Career Fair to answer questions from community members about academic, healthcare and skilled trades programs at MCC.

“We’re so grateful to have a great partner like KUSD putting together this community event, where everyone can find out how our faculty and student services teams can help them,” said MCC Director of Communications James Jarman.  “Whether it’s an associate degree, bachelor’s degree or a skills certificate, MCC is the place to get started on the affordable path to increasing your career earnings potential.”  

Market research shows Mohave Community College graduates earn approximately $726,000 more over the course of their working lives than those in Mohave County with only a high school diploma.

At the KUSD College and Career Fair, you will have the opportunity to meet with college financial aid representatives, admissions specialists and other team members who can answer questions about how the college can help get you started on the path to a dream career.  

There will also be many local companies, along with other colleges and universities, military recruiters and vocational schools to answer your questions.

Local organizations planning to attend include American Woodmark Corporation, City of Kingman Fire Department, City of Kingman Parks and Recreation, The Lingenfelter Center, Mohave County Probation Department, Mohave County Sheriff’s Detention Office, Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and more.

“This fair impacts the community by bringing affordable higher education opportunities, access to all military branches and the ability to ask what the military may offer each individual and also employment opportunities in the community. Therefore, it helps with having career ready youth after high school graduation and helps adults to achieve their career goals along with employment,” said Kim Richhart, KUSD Guidance Counselor.

The fair is open to the public from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29 at the Mohave County Fairgrounds, 2600 Fairgrounds Blvd. Kingman High School Chef’s Club will be selling dinner meals during the evening portion of the fair.
