Over the winter, the LFCC College Board voted to rename the college, which is in the midst of celebrating its 50th anniversary. All of the 23 colleges in the Virginia Community College System had been tasked with reviewing their names by the Virginia State Board for Community Colleges.
“It is the right time to take this opportunity to rename the college and move forward, capturing all we have accomplished in the past and the bright future we have ahead,” LFCC College Board Member Lt. Gen. Benjamin Freakley said.
The decision was made following a six-month study and review period involving a workgroup and a brand research firm. Since the board’s decision, a naming taskforce has been considering names, many of which have been suggested by students, staff, alumni and community members, and working with a nationally-renowned naming specialist.
