On Saturday May 11, the College Board of Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) presented Medallions of Recognition to five individuals who have contributed in a variety of ways to LFCC’s mission. One of which is Kenneth Garrison Jr., executive director of the Heavy Construction Contractors Association. He and the HCCA played a vital role as LFCC established and then expanded the heavy equipment operator credentialed program. When crucial grant funding was paused, the HCCA provided $50,000 in scholarship funding to keep the program in operation. Congratulations, Ken and HCCA, and thank you for your significant contributions to Virginia’s workforce.
