MOHAVE COUNTY – Mohave Community College is pleased to announce that Chief Human Resources Officer Jennie Dixon is being promoted to lead the college administrative services division.
“MCC is very excited to have Jennie Dixon serve as the new vice president for administrative services,” said Dr. Stacy Klippenstein, the college president. “This position is critical to the success of college, and accomplishing all goals set forth in the new strategic plan. Jennie has the ability to bring all the complex and important functional areas together to support student learning, teaching, and employee success.”
Dixon is being promoted to the new position after successfully leading the college Human Resources Department for 12 years.
The college Administrative Services division she will oversee includes the Department of Finance, Employee Services, Information Technology, and Facilities. She will provide leadership and guidance in the coordination of proactive, accountable and innovative services that support the mission and vision of MCC.
“I’m really fortunate that all of these departments are highly functioning and focused on the mission of Mohave Community College,” said Dixon, who also credited her MCC education with helping get her on a career path after high school. “The education and experience I received at MCC were the first stepping stones to a career about which I am passionate, in a community and county that I love,” she said. “This new opportunity allows me to serve the organization that put me on a path to personal success.”
Dixon’s roots in Mohave County run deep. She attended elementary school at Palo Christi and Manzanita Elementary Schools, then Kingman Junior High School, and graduated from Kingman High School. She then attended Mohave Community College where she worked in the Kingman Campus library.
After earning an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts in 1995, she worked for Kingman Elementary/Mohave Union High School/Kingman Unified School District. The two districts merged into KUSD while she worked there from 1995 to 2009 in various payroll, human resources and administration-related duties.
While employed at KUSD, she earned a Bachelor of Science in Business – Human Resource Management from Western Governors University, and earned a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification and SHRM-CP certification. She joined the Mohave Community College team as the Human Resources leader in September of 2009.Dixon takes the reins of her new position on April 5.
Mohave Community College will not fill the position of Chief Human Resources Officer, which Dixon most recently held. Instead, the Employee Services department will return to the staffing model that was used previously. The current HR Manager will take on additional responsibilities in the department and provide a greater level of leadership. An HR Generalist position will be posted to support the workload in the office.
