MOHAVE COUNTY – Mohave Community College, the MCC Foundation, the Kingman Area Chamber of Commerce and ARIZONA@WORK are back for the second annual Bighorn Trek event, and are looking for area business and industry leaders who want to have a positive impact in the community.
The goal of Bighorn Trek is to bring community members, students and business leaders together with a singular purpose – help improve lives and our community.
“Bighorn Trek is a great way for community members to fully see the connections between education, career, and community engagement in a fun and non-threatening environment,” said Dr. Tramaine Rausaw, MCC Vice President of Student and Community Engagement. “Our MCC team members along with our local business and industry partners, including Kingman Chamber and ARIZONA@WORK, will be on-site ready to meet people and help them create new pathways for success.”
Event organizers are hosting the free community event at Mohave Community College’s Neal Campus-Kingman on Nov. 2 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees will learn how the College and local businesses can help them get on the path to good careers with family-sustaining salaries.
There will be an opportunity to meet with College instructors and local businesses who can explain the skills needed to become successful. There will also be a job fair highlighting current openings throughout the area.
There are many reasons to join the Bighorn Trek as a sponsor and/or vendor.
Business and industry employers can participate in the career fair, strengthen partnerships with educational partners, utilize the marketing network of the College to increase awareness of their companies, and take advantage of opportunities to connect with the future workforce.
Charitable and nonprofit organizations can increase awareness in the services they provide. For those seeking to increase membership, they can also promote the values of their organization and recruit new members.
MCC and other educational institutions will be promoting the numerous programs and pathways that are available to the public, as well as helping people to connect with potential employers upon completion of their current course of study.
Governmental agencies will be able to share the great services that they have to support our community, as well as continue to network positive partnership opportunities with other participants.
“This is a great opportunity to meet with job seekers and students to fill open positions,” said Becky Fawson, Kingman Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director. “Bighorn Trek is an amazing opportunity to learn about services, training and classes offered by MCC and other local organizations that will allow you to find the perfect employee without leaving town.”
Proceeds from the Bighorn Trek sponsorships and vendor fees will help the MCC Foundation, which raises funds for college scholarships to support students in the MCC district. Register now at BighornTrek.com to be a sponsor
