The AWC Foundation has benefitted from a long-standing relationship with APS. APS has supported the AWC Veterans Programs, Thursdays at the Theater, the Etiquette Luncheon, AWC San Luis Science and CNA lab, and our signature fundraiser, Schoolhouse Soiree.
AWC San Luis Science Center
APS has supported the AWC San Luis Science Center. The 1,200 square-foot lab classroom will provide students with the opportunity to earn up to a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Computer Informatics completely from San Luis starting Fall 2022. Currently, students must travel to the Yuma Campus to fulfill science lab requirements for the program. The new lab will also allow AWC to offer a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program in San Luis as the facility will include space for showers, storage, and laundry. The APS grant supported the purchase of stethoscopes, digital scales, thermometers, manikins, and wheelchairs.
