KINGMAN - A holiday glow each evening from Tuesday to Dec. 19 is Mohave Community College's gift to the communities of Mohave County as "MCC Shines" marks its third year on all four campuses.

MCC Shines began as the brainchild of the Mohave Community College Foundation in Bullhead City, and for the third year now involves all four campuses under the direction of the campus presidents.

The Henry Campus in Bullhead City, Neal Campus in Kingman, the Lake Havasu City campus and the North Mohave Campus in Colorado City will hold lighting ceremonies on Tuesday. MCC Foundation, college and campus officials will welcome members of the community, local officials and service-area residents to the lighting ceremonies. Campus lighting ceremonies are at 6:45 p.m.

There will be refreshments, entertainment and fun activities for all ages to enjoy surrounding the lighting ceremonies.

"This is MCC's gift to the communities and residents we serve," MCC Chancellor Michael Kearns said.

The Neal Campus's kick-off ceremony will run from 6 to 7 p.m. in Building 200. The event will feature holiday music, light refreshments, and jewelry sale.

An appearance by Santa and Mrs. Claus is expected around 6:30 p.m.
