LURAY, Va. – For years, Robert B. Drumheller has supported his community economically as a business owner. But that is not the only way that Drumheller has served Page County. In September 2006, Drumheller established the Robert B. Drumheller Scholarship through the Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) Educational Foundation Inc. to benefit Page County residents.

Drumheller celebrated his 60th birthday on Jan. 27, 2007, at the Regional Center for the Performing Arts of Luray. In celebration of his life and the lives of those the College serves, Drumheller requested that his guests make a donation to the LFCC Robert B. Drumheller Scholarship fund. As a result of this request, Drumheller and his family and friends contributed a total of $4,630 to the scholarship fund.

The Robert B. Drumheller Scholarship will benefit full- and/or part-time LFCC students who live in Page County. The scholarship will be awarded annually and divided equally between the fall and spring semesters. Satisfactory academic progress (minimum grade point average of 2.0) must be maintained in order for the recipient to receive the award for the spring semester. The scholarship award may be applied toward tuition, fees and/or books.

Individuals interested in donating to this or other scholarship funds may make checks payable to “LFCC Educational Foundation,” write the name of the fund on the memo line and mail the checks to the LFCC Educational Foundation Inc., 173 Skirmisher Lane, Middletown, VA 22645-1745.
