The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation has received the 12th annual Virginia Community College Chancellor’s Award for Leadership in Philanthropy.

Lord Fairfax Community College nominated the foundation, formerly known as Fauquier Health Foundation, for the award, presented at an April 18 luncheon at the Country Club of Virginia.

PATH Foundation President/CEO Christy Connolly and Chairman John McCarthy represented the foundation at the event.  

Hosted by the Virginia Foundation for Community College Education, the award honors leading philanthropists from each of the state’s 23 community colleges. This year’s class of philanthropy leaders has contributed a combined total of more than $10 million to the commonwealth’s community colleges.

The PATH Foundation in February 2016 announced a $1 million gift to the LFCC Educational Foundation to help build the Eleanor C. and William A. Hazel Hall, a new building to house science, engineering and health professions programs on the Warrenton Campus. A month later, the General Assembly approved $17 million in construction funds for Hazel Hall.

“You are difference-makers. You are opportunity-creators,” Virginia Community College Chancellor Glenn DuBois said. “We thank you, not just for the dollars donated, but for the standard of leadership you represent. Your example motivates and challenges us all to do more to ensure that opportunity is there for those who come next.”

LFCC President Cheryl Thompson-Stacy said: “By investing in LFCC through such a transformational gift, the PATH Foundation is investing in a skilled workforce and access to education — particularly in the health professions.  We are so grateful for their leadership in philanthropy and in our community.”

An LFCC student will receive a one-year scholarship of $3,500 next fall in honor of the PATH Foundation. Wells Fargo will underwrite such a scholarship at each Virginia community college.
