Mohave Community College President Michael Kearns to retire in 2019

Mohave Community College President Michael Kearns has announced that he plans to retire in 2019, after eight years leading the college.

He made the announcement at Friday’s Board of Governors meeting.

“We commend him for his excellent service leading the college over the past eight years and wish him well in his retirement,” Board President Phyllis Smith said after an executive session in which he told members of his plans.

Kearns, 64, joined MCC in 2004 after retiring from his dental practice in Ohio.

He launched the dental school and became Bullhead City campus dean in 2006.

Kearns was named vice chancellor of instruction in 2007 and appointed chancellor a year later.

In September 2010, he replaced Dr. Thomas Henry as president.

Under his leadership, the college said, MCC has seen graduation rates rise to 11 percent higher than the national average. The number of high school graduates entering MCC is above the state and national averages, according to an MCC press release, and MCC has kept more students enrolled and pursuing their higher-education goals.
