On Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at 12:30 p.m. Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) will hold a celebration of life in memory of Evan C. Humbert, Instructor of Mathematics. (Humbert died on June 22, 2011.) The event was planned by students, staff, and faculty of the College to remember, celebrate and share the inspiration that came from Humbert’s work at the college as an instructor and club sponsor.
The event will begin with remembrances in the Thompson Center of the Corron Community Development Center, then move outside to plant a tree in memory of Humbert. In recognition of Humbert’s love of food, many participants will bring desserts to share. The public is welcome at this event.
