Two Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) employees recently won three first-place awards in the Virginia Community College Association (VCCA) 2009 Excellence in Communications competition.

Aaron Riddle, LFCC’s print and Web communication manager, won first place in the category of Course Catalogs and Schedules for the design of the spring 2009 Workforce Solutions catalog, “Partners in Your Success.”

Riddle also earned first place in the category of 3D Objects for a megaphone designed using the theme of “Then and Now.” The megaphone was produced in-house for use during a special legislative visit.

LFCC’s webmaster Curtiss Grymala, along with Riddle, took first place for the College’s home page, located at www.lfcc.edu

Public relations and advertising firm tba (the becher agency, based in Roanoke) judged the 123 entries submitted by Virginia’s 23 community colleges and the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) office in Richmond. The entries were evaluated on quality and creativity.
