MCC nursing student selected as 2020 Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholar 


MOHAVE COUNTY – Mohave Community College student, Andrew Gutierrez, has been selected as a 2020 Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholar.  Gutierrez is a full-time nursing student and has been attending MCC since 2017. He also works full-time at Western Arizona Medical Center as a pharmacy technician, as well as a front desk clerk at Bullhead Health Club, and is also a certified Zumba instructor.  He decided to join the medical field because he realized after working in the hospital he wanted to do more to assist patients and the nursing side started to gain his interest.

“As a career, nursing kind of hit me and really make me think about how much I would love to do that,” Gutierrez said.

After graduating from Mohave High School he took a semester off and started working but eventually he decided to start going back to school. He enjoys attending MCC because the classes are able to work with his full-time work schedule.  Although he is just starting his first semester of nursing classes, he looks forward to when he gets to work clinicals, which are supervised interactions with patients at local healthcare facilities. Gutierrez is part of the Student Nursing Organization and Phi Theta Kappa-Bullhead City chapter.

The Leaders of Promise Scholarship, sponsored by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, recognizes 200 Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society members with awards totaling $200,000. Coca-Cola Leaders of Promise Scholars are selected based on outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated leadership potential. In addition to the honor of being a Leader of Promise, Gutierrez will receive a $1,000 scholarship.

MCC is currently registering students for classes that are eight weeks long and begin on October 19. Registration for spring semester classes will begin in mid-October.
