Coconino Community College seeks a tax budget override. See other related CCC regional news here

Coconino may be the second largest county in the country in terms of land size, but it has one of the smallest community colleges in the state.

And because of that, it, like most, often needs a helping hand.

Over the last decade, state funnding to community colleges has decreased by 64 percent — the largest percentage of any state in the country.
