MIDDLETOWN and WARRENTON, Va. – The Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) Board recently announced the appointment of a new member. Mary E. Greene will represent Frederick County on the College Board; she will serve a one-year unexpired term and will be eligible for re-appointment for a four-year term.
Greene, a Cross Junction resident, works as the plant controller at Rubbermaid Commercial Products in Winchester. Prior to joining Rubbermaid, she was the plant and group controller at American Woodmark. Greene has also held senior accounting and finance positions throughout her career. Greene holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Connecticut, and she has earned graduate credits in accounting from the University of Hartford.
“I have always been active in my community, and this manner of involvement combines two features that are important to me: a way to give back to the community and a way to show my life-long respect for the mission and culture of the community college,” Greene said. “LFCC is an affordable, effective resource for individuals who want to update and enhance their skills, which will make them more valuable employees. This in turn allows local businesses to be more competitive with a higher caliber workforce. Both of these aspects contribute to a favorable financial impact on our community.”
Greene has experienced firsthand the impact that LFCC can have on a student. “I was pleased that my daughter chose the community college path after high school. With our encouragement she recognized that this path leads to a variety of options, such as continuing on to a four-year school or starting her career in the workforce with the advantage of an associate degree. I am impressed with LFCC’s curriculum and the flexibility of the class schedules,” Greene said.
Founded in 1970, Lord Fairfax Community College is a multi-campus public institution of higher education. With four locations — Middletown, Warrenton, Luray-Page County and most recently, Vint Hill— the College serves eight localities in the Shenandoah Valley and northern Piedmont regions.
