Radio station Hot 103 Jamz did a remote broadcast at the MCC-Longview campus to promote the Saturday hours. Personality Julee Jonez interviewed MCC Chancellor Dr. Kimberly Beatty and Vice Chancellor Dr. Kathrine Swanson about the opportunities MCC has to offer.

“We have every program that you need that’ll put you right to work,” Dr. Beatty said on Hot 103 Jamz. “If it’s HVAC, if it’s automotive, whatever your needs are, engineering, (or) if you’re going to transfer, we’ve got it for you at five campuses.”

“Our today is your tomorrow,” Dr. Beatty also told listeners.

Dr. Swanson said MCC has more to offer for more value. “Students can start with us, complete their baccalaureate degree at one of our partner institutions, and save up to a third of the cost of their education by doing so,” she told Jonez on the air.

Hot 103 Jamz also gave away promotional items to students.

Eight-week classes and mini-sessions that start later this spring are still available. Learn more at mcckc.edu/shortterm.
