MOHAVE COUNTY – Mohave Community College and WAVE/JTED recently hosted high school students from Lake Havasu, Bullhead City and Kingman, and their parents for college orientation.
Incoming WAVE/JTED families were able to learn what the program is about and what responsibility students are taking upon themselves.
Laci Johnson, a student at Lake Havasu High School, decided to enroll in college classes to get a head start toward her career in the medical field.
“I will be going into the certified nursing assisting program to get my foot into the medical field and to learn about patient care,” said Johnson.
WAVE/JTED and MCC provide college classes for high school students. JTED pays for the tuition and MCC provides the classes. It gives students the opportunity to take college classes and possibly earn a certificate while still attending high school.
Students at orientation are going into various programs like welding, HVAC or practical nursing. Some students were able to meet with their instructors and ask questions about what they should expect for the course of the program.
