8th Grade Visits Yavapai College
Mountain View Preparatory 8th graders had the chance to visit Yavapai College Verde Valley Campus in Clarkdale on February 11th. While at the college the students participated in a scavenger hunt while taking a tour of the campus. Students visited the fitness center, the nursing building, the student union as well as the library. They were also given amazing advice on goal setting, working hard and steps to take to prepare themselves for college and career. Students were surprised that there were so many opportunities available to them right here in their own community.
