The breakfast is an opportunity for representatives from local businesses to meet with educators throughout Yavapai County and discuss partnership opportunities.
Morgan's presentation outlined several new and expanded programs including the college's aviation, gunsmith, and vitiology programs. Morgan also discussed several opportunities the college is exploring to allow local students to find careers with local industry, keeping their talents in the community.
"We continue to lose our talented kids to other areas because our local economy can only support so much," said Morgan. "We, as a business and education community, need to get our arms around what is needed to keep our kids here."
Morgan finished his presentation by explaining the goal to make Yavapai College a destination venue.
"This means that we will start programs that provide lots of choices for your kids and you to attend," said Morgan. "We want everyone to look at us from around the country as the place to go."
He used the example of the gunsmith department, which has a four-year waiting list and is recognized as one of the best in the country.
