Moreno Valley College to Conclude Anniversary Celebrations
with a Community Roaring Block Party
Moreno Valley College will conclude its academic-long 25th anniversary celebrations with a Roaring Block Party on Saturday, May 14.
Festivities get underway at 10 am. Admission and parking are free.
The day will feature a College information faire; live entertainment; a kid's interactive area, which will include a petting zoo, arts and crafts, face painting, and hands-on demonstrations; a career showcase, highlighting allied health and Ben Clark Training Center programs; food trucks; and a motorcycle showcase. Entry fees from the motorcycle show will benefit the College's scholarship fund. Local performance groups, from middle to high school to College, will be performing throughout the day.
Community members will also be able to receive information on academic and student support services, College admission process, and financial aid opportunities. The community can also tour the College's STEM Mobile Lab.
"The Roaring Block Party is just the College's way of saying thank you to the community and the school districts it serves," Frankie Moore, chair of the Roaring Block Committee, said. "For 25 years we've been serving the community's educational needs, and because of the support of our local school districts and the community we're positioned to continue to meet those needs in allied health, safety, and transfer opportunities for many more years.
"We're excited about the future of this institution. We hope to convey to the community our thanks, while also showcasing opportunities. Whether you are 18 years of age and just out of high school, 30 looking for a new career or 60 looking to learn a new language, Moreno Valley College is prepared to deliver quality educational opportunities."
