As LFCC’s (Lord Fairfax Community College) Forensics program celebrates its 20th Anniversary, so too, does it celebrate a superb outcome at a recent competition in Montreal, Canada.  Members from LFCC’s group travelled with Bloomsburg University’s team to compete in the Collegiate Forensics Association’s Tournament on January 23-24, 2015.

 

LFCC team members performed well, and had time to meet and bond with other competitors, especially Bloomsburg University students.  “ It was a wonderful opportunity to go to Canada and I thank Dr. Neil Strine for inviting us to travel with his group”, said Sunniva Moore, LFCC’s student leader. She added, “Planning for this trip started early, because we had to make sure everyone from LFCC had a passport.”
