Citing education as the key to long-term economic prosperity in the rural 15th District, Del. Todd Gilbert (R-Woodstock) announced his proposal to expand the services offered by Lord Fairfax Community College in his district Monday. Gilbert proposes to double the services currently provided by the Luray-Page County Center within five years. The proposal will include:
Expanding "Workforce Solutions” to bring vocational and career and technical opportunities currently offered only at the Middletown and Fauquier campuses into the area.
LFCC could offer local courses for those seeking new careers in such areas as health care, advanced computing, and the construction trades utilizing current classroom space and other resources, including those within local school systems such as the Page County Technical Center.
