Lucas comes from a family with strong ties to MCC. His parents, five siblings and their spouses began their college experience at the college.
“I have a unique appreciation for the impact of community college,” Lucas said. “Being involved in and supporting our community is a core value for my family. What I discovered is that Mesa Community College was and continues to be a support for each one of us.”
Lucas is working toward earning an Associate of Science at MCC and plans to transfer to ASU Kinesiology to become a physical therapist.
