MIDDLETOWN and WARRENTON, Va. – Lord Fairfax Community College's (LFCC) mission is to serve the community and support area residents through education and training. Now, area residents can show support for their community college by purchasing an LFCC license plate through the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.
As an added bonus, LFCC will receive $15 for every license plate purchased after the first 1,000 license plates are sold. These monies will be used to establish a Phi Theta Kappa scholarship through the Lord Fairfax Community College Educational Foundation Inc.
Interested individuals may view the license plate and/or purchase it by visiting http://www.dmv.virginia.gov/exec/vehicle/splates/info.asp?idnm=LFCC.
