MOHAVE COUNTY – Mohave Community College Lake Havasu Campus is hosting the Mohave Military Museum’s first exhibit named “Oh Say Can You See,” now through the end of December.
The Mohave Military Museum is a nonprofit with a wide range collection of military and war related artifacts which include photos, uniforms, medals, newspaper articles and much more. All items have been donated from Lake Havasu residents.
Lake Havasu Campus Dean of Student and Community Engagement, Dr. Maria Ayon, is excited to have the exhibit at the College because it’s a great way to educate students and the community about local veterans.
“We are thrilled to host the Mohave Military Museum it’s a great way to honor our veterans and educate our community of their sacrifices,” Dr. Ayon said. “Having tangible items on hand that tell stories of sacrifice, bravery, and courage creates an environment of learning and transports individuals to that specific place and time.”
She also said she’s proud that MCC is designated by the state of Arizona as a Veteran Supportive Campus.
The designation recognizes MCC’s commitment to better understand the needs of veteran students. With over 200 veteran students, the College offers supportive services to students to assist them towards a successful transition from the military to civilian careers.
Those interested in viewing the exhibit can do so from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., until December 30 at the Hodel Library, bldg. 1200. Exhibit is not viewable during days the College is closed and weekends.
