Kimberly Blosser named new LFCC president

Kimberly Blosser will become Lord Fairfax’s fifth president next year.
Lord Fairfax Community College officials have selected Kimberly P. Blosser, the college’s current vice president of academic and student affairs, as the next president.

Glenn DuBois, chancellor of Virginia’s Community Colleges, made the announcement Tuesday afternoon.

LFCC President Cheryl Thompson-Stacy will retire Feb. 1 after nine years in the position. Dr. Thompson-Stacy earns $210,000 a year.

Dr. Blosser will become LFCC’s fifth president by Feb. 1. She will earn $159,000 annually.

“Kim has been a rising star in our college system,” Chancellor DuBois said. “On numerous occasions, I’ve asked Kim to provide statewide leadership on issues facing all 23 of our colleges. She’s energetic, compassionate and focused. I’m confident she’ll be highly effective as president of LFCC.”

Dr. Blosser began her career in 1996 as a high school teacher in Staunton.

In 1998, she transitioned into higher education, taking on the role of associate professor and then dean at Blue Ridge Community College near Weyers Cave.

In 2012, Dr. Blosser was named associate vice president of instruction at LFCC and was promoted to vice president of academic and student affairs three years later.

“The board feels that Dr. Blosser’s experience and commitment position her to continue the successful leadership provided by Dr. Cheryl Thompson-Stacy,” said LFCC board chair Fran Jeffries. “We look forward to working with Dr. Blosser as we continue to provide learning opportunities within the LFCC service area.”

The State Board for Community Colleges chose Dr. Blosser from more than 100 applicants nationwide.

Founded at Middletown in 1970, Lord Fairfax Community College also offers classes at Warrenton, Vint Hill and Luray.
