Harry G. Papagan was recently honored with the Professor Emeritus award by the Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) Board for his exceptional service and contributions to the College.
Harry joined LFCC in 1988 as a professor of English and later served as the math, humanities and social sciences team leader. He was repeatedly elected by his peers to the Faculty Council and was LFCC’s representative to the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) chancellor’s Faculty Advisory Group. Due to his strong leadership abilities, in 2001, he moved on to become the dean of math, humanities and social sciences, a position he held until his retirement in 2005.
While at LFCC, Harry received the B.J. Sager Outstanding Faculty Member Award, the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) Showcase Award and the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) award. He was also an editor for “Inquiry,” a VCCS publication.
