BULLHEAD CITY – Mohave Community College is bringing students, community members and businesses together with a focus on building a great future.
The college Connecting the Community event, called ConCom, will be at the Bullhead City campus on March 30th and is free to attend. The atmosphere will be fun and casual with music, food, a job fair, the Show and Shine Car Show and an accident simulation with Bullhead City Fire Department and Tristate CareFlight.
Residents of the tristate region are invited to join the college, the MCC Foundation and event sponsors ARIZONA@WORK, Don Laughlin’s Riverside Resort & Casino, DOT Foods, Anderson Chrysler, Baron’s Services, Vern Lewis Welding and many others at ConCom.
“ConCom is so great because people can talk with employers who will also be joined by college employees who help prepare students for a successful future,” said MCC Campus Dean of Student & Community Engagement Dr. Carolyn Hamblin, who is organizing the event with the MCC Foundation. “This is a win-win opportunity for residents and the community.”
People will learn about the benefits of higher education and see firsthand how it helps lead to higher paying careers and successful futures.
There will also be information for those who are interested in non-credit, fun and informational classes offered by the college Community Education division.
The college offers more than 80 accredited degrees and certificates, and event attendees have the chance to meet with faculty and staff from those educational programs.
“We’ll have teams from all of our campuses represented at this one event to show how MCC can help you improve your future earning power,” said Dr. Hamblin. “You’ll also be able to talk with business owners and find out the education and skills they want you to have, and ARIZONA@WORK will be holding a job fair.”
Many students who earn an associate degree in the MCC general education programs simultaneously complete the first two years of study toward a bachelor’s degree. Those students end up saving an estimated $15,000 in tuition alone by starting at MCC then transferring to one of the college’s university partners to earn a bachelor’s degree.
MCC will have a team on hand at ConCom to explain how to get the most benefit from the college’s university transfer partnerships.
Businesses that would like to participate in MCC ConCom are encouraged to contact the college as soon as possible. Money raised through sponsorships and vendor fees will support local college students.
MCC ConCom is March 30 from 10:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the MCC Bullhead City Campus – 3400 Hwy 95. Music provided by Radio DJ Loke Laub.
