Fort Morgan, CO. 12/02/13. Morgan Community College (MCC), in partnership with Colorado Mountain College (CMC), is offering solar energy classes for the spring semester. There are two orientations scheduled for Thursday, December 5 at the Fort Morgan campus; a representative from CMC will be available at 2 p.m. and at 6 p.m. in Founders Room for orientation and registration for students considering a career in solar energy.
