“It’s for everyone looking to take their lives to the next level,” said Assoc. Dean Susana Zambrano


Arizona Western College continues its mission to meet people more than halfway

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - It wasn't that long ago that wanting to go to college meant struggling. Not just struggling to pay for it, but to actually get there.

Arizona Western College has long since been a beacon of opportunity. But, if you lived on the outskirts of Yuma County, getting to the AWC campus was a mission in itself.

Thankfully, the area transit system came along and made getting to the school a little easier. But, it still costs to ride and it meant taking the scenic route to and from school.

So, the community college lived up to its name and branched out throughout its community. With Satellite campuses in Parker, Somerton, and now San Luis getting a secondary education has been made easier.

But, this opportunity isn't just for those leaving high school behind this summer. According to Associate Dean for South County Susana Zambrano this opportunity is for anyone wanting to take that next step.

Zambrano mentioned that students still enrolled in high school can sign-up for a dual credit course. Adults who are looking to spruce their resumes can also take advantage of the school's flexible classes.

So for anyone wanting to know about secondary education the San Luis Learning Center will be hosting a Reg Fest on April 28, from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at its campus on 8th Avenue (1340 8th Avenue) just east of San Luis High School.

Now, if you're interested, please be sure to bring your transcripts and any financial paperwork you may need.
