In addition to the virtual ceremony, graduates can participate in a drive-thru “diploma walk” Thursday, May 13, at the Fauquier Campus.
Members of Lord Fairfax Community College’s Class of 2021 will have several opportunities to mark their commencement.
Because of the pandemic, the college held its first-ever virtual graduation ceremony in 2020. A similar ceremony – complete with the National Anthem, an address from LFCC President Kim Blosser, a graduation speech by graduate Faith Dellinger, recognition of the outstanding graduates and more – will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 15. The ceremony will remain online for at least a year.
In addition to the virtual commencement ceremony, graduates will have the opportunity to participate in a drive-thru “diploma walk.” They may choose to walk at the Fauquier Campus on Thursday, May 13, or at the Middletown Campus on Friday, May 14.
Each graduate will be allowed to have two vehicles accompany them. The graduate will have a scheduled time to have their name read, walk across the stage, receive their diploma cover and be photographed
“I am so excited we are able to give our graduates the opportunity to walk across the stage this year and allow their families and supporters to see them graduate,” Dr. Blosser said. “They – and all of our faculty and staff – have worked so hard and persevered through a difficult year, and we are happy to celebrate them.”
