Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) will host one Commencement ceremony at Skyline High School, 151 Skyline Vista Drive, Front Royal, on Saturday, May 14 at 1 p.m. This marks the 40th Commencement Exercises for the College, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2010.  

Front Royal resident Sarah Williams, a 2011 recipient of an associate degree in Education, an associate degree in Liberal Arts, and a certificate in Education, will deliver the Commencement Address.  She plans to pursue a degree in Psychology with a minor in Spanish at the University of Virginia.  LFCC student Radleigh Smith, Jr. will introduce Ms. Williams. 

This year, special music will be provided by dramatic soprano Alessandra Marc.  Ms. Marc, a resident of Chantilly, VA, has been a frequent guest of the world’s leading opera houses and orchestras, collaborating with the most eminent conductors of our time.  According to The Washington Post, “Alessandra Marc has the most beautiful voice in the world.” 

Approximately 890 students from across LFCC’s service region make up the Class of 2011. This figure reflects the number of degrees and professional certificates awarded in summer 2010, fall 2010 and spring 2011. By May 31, a final list of certified graduates will be posted to the College’s Web site at www.lfcc.edu
