The Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) Educational Foundation, Inc. has added a new endowed scholarship to its list of available funds to assist LFCC students with their education — the Clifton and Sandra Good Endowed Scholarship.
The scholarship was recently provided by Clifton and Sandra Good of Front Royal, Va. The Goods are true supporters of LFCC, having donated to the College on several occasions before establishing this scholarship.
“We’ve been very blessed,” said Mrs. Good. “And we feel as though we want to give back and assist students who have a need.”
The Goods experienced LFCC firsthand when their son, Michael, attended as a dual-enrolled student while at Warren County High School. The couple later met a young woman who had struggled to save the tip money she earned waiting on tables to pay her tuition at the College. They decided to help her by purchasing the books for her first semester.
“She had worked so hard,” Mrs. Good noted. “We want to help people who want an education and just don’t have the money to go.” For this reason, they decided to create a scholarship fund specifically for LFCC students.
This scholarship will provide assistance for tuition, fees and books. To be eligible for this annual award, the applicant must be enrolled at LFCC as a full-time student and maintain a minimum 2.5 grade point average. Satisfactory academic progress must be maintained for the recipient to receive the award the following semester. The scholarship award will be divided equally between the fall and spring semesters.
Clifton Good began his career in Front Royal in 1962 as a police officer. He started his own real estate firm and was a Nationwide insurance agent for over 30 years and is also a founding director of The Marathon Bank. After helping in the real estate firm and running their farm, Sandra is now volunteering at the Warren Memorial Hospital and also with their church.
In addition to the aforementioned scholarship, the Foundation has many other scholarship funds that provide assistance to full- and part-time students. Current or prospective LFCC students interested in applying for one of the many LFCC scholarships can obtain additional information on LFCC’s Web site at http://www.lfcc.edu/scholarships.
Individuals interested in donating to LFCC scholarship funds may contact David Urso, executive director of the LFCC Educational Foundation, Inc., at 540-868-4077 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
