Arizona President Wants Students to Finish 2-Year Degrees

KINGMAN – Michael Kearns wants to raise the number of Mohave County residents with an associates degree by just 1 percent a year, which would require 320 graduates from Mohave Community College.

That’s about twice as many graduates as the college currently produces, he said Monday at the Conservative Republican Club of Kingman monthly meeting at Dambar Steakhouse.

Kearns, president of Mohave Community College, said his primary goal is to get students to finish the two-year associates program, and that means passing their required math class. Math is the biggest obstacle for many community college students, he said.
