Maricopa Community Colleges to mark milestone
PHOENIX -— Beginning Sunday, the Maricopa Community Colleges will launch a yearlong celebration of its 50th anniversary.
The community college district that now oversees 10 colleges was established in a vote by county voters in 1962.
The college system has set up a website that details key moments in the history of its schools and the system itself.
The website also includes videos of students, teachers, employees and community members reflecting on the colleges.
