MIDDLETOWN and WARRENTON, Va. – Lord Fairfax Community College’s (LFCC) Financial Aid Office awarded 166 scholarships through the LFCC Educational Foundation Inc. Scholarship Program for the 2007-08 academic year. The scholarships provide financial assistance to LFCC students, helping to defray the costs of tuition, fees and books. These scholarship awards totaled $189,664.48.

The impact of these scholarships can be measured in the heartfelt thanks of the scholarship recipients. Like many scholarship recipients, Jennifer Ramey would not be able to continue her education without financial assistance. “This scholarship is more than what I imagined to receive, and I cannot be more thankful. It has given me the confidence and determination I need to apply to my future,” said Ramey, who plans to transfer to James Madison University in fall 2008, where she hopes to pursue a bachelor’s degree in media arts and design.
