Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) will host one Commencement ceremony at Skyline High School, 151 Skyline Vista Drive, Front Royal, on Saturday, May 15 at 4 p.m. This marks the 39th Commencement Exercises for the College, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.  

Culpeper resident Ross Buckles, a 2010 recipient of an associate degree in liberal arts, will be the featured speaker. He plans to pursue a law degree after transferring to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor’s degree in political science. LFCC student Whitney Nelsen will introduce Buckles. 

Approximately 788 students from across LFCC’s service region make up the Class of 2010. This figure reflects the number of degrees and professional certificates awarded in summer 2009, fall 2009 and spring 2010. By May 31, a final list of certified graduates will be posted to the College’s Web site at www.lfcc.edu
