MIDDLETOWN and WARRENTON, Va. – The Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) Educational Foundation Inc. recently announced the appointment of two new Board members. William C. Daniel joins the Foundation Board for a three-year term, and Gene L. Loranger joins the Foundation Board for a one-year term.
Daniel, a Clarke County resident, is an assistant principal at James Wood High School. In this role, he is responsible for student supervision and discipline, instructional leadership and extracurricular activities supervision. In addition, he assists the principal in the normal operation of the school. Daniel holds an associate degree from Lord Fairfax Community College and a bachelor’s degree and two master’s degrees from the University of Virginia.
“LFCC is a major factor in the well-being of our community,” Daniel said. “I was inspired to serve on the Foundation Board, because I wanted the opportunity to help the College continue to move in a positive direction. This opportunity also allows me to assist in maintaining the current and future financial strength of the College.”
Loranger, a Frederick County resident, is an associate professor of manufacturing technology at LFCC. In addition to instruction, Loranger is responsible for program development in the area of manufacturing technology. He is a licensed master electrician and electrical contractor in Virginia and a licensed stationary engineer in Washington, D.C. Loranger holds an associate degree from Massasoit Community College in Massachusetts, a bachelor’s degree from Houghton College in New York and a master’s degree from Shenandoah University.
“I want everyone to know that LFCC is changing lives. I have seen many career switchers who have come here as a result of plant closings and leave to start a new, rewarding career. I have seen students become successful business owners, and others rise within the ranks of their employer as a result of continuing their education at LFCC,” Loranger said. “Some students are financially restricted, and the Foundation may just be the vehicle to help make their dreams a reality.”
