AWC alumni shares experiences as a college student, governing board member

Parker, AZ (June 7, 2018) – It’s never too late to go to college and earn a degree.

When Randy Hartless moved to Parker in 1990, he enrolled at Arizona Western College with no clear plan of what degree he wanted to pursue. He started taking a variety of courses because he had an interest in learning, but it wasn’t until 20 years later, at age 52, that he decided to focus on earning an associate degree.

Working mom of three shares about her experiences at AWC

Parker, AZ (May 15, 2018) – The small school atmosphere and number of services available to help guide students were two deciding factors for Heather Huhtala when considering whether or not to attend Arizona Western College. The proximity of AWC’s Parker Campus to her home and the affordability of the classes helped too, especially since she was also raising three children and working at the same time.

Huhtala took a combination of online and in-person courses to earn her Associate of Arts degree in Psychology from AWC in 2016.
