Our conversation today with Guy Curtis, Director of Marketing for Laurel Ridge Community College included details for several upcoming virtual information sessions and open houses planned in the coming months. Joining us for the chat was Michelle Cribbs, Director of Outreach for the college.

We initially talked about the name change for the school and the opportunity changing the name from Lord Fairfax Community College to Laurel Ridge Community College affords the institution to reach a new audience.

Michelle explained her role as Director of Outreach and talked about the valuable partnerships they’ve established with local businesses, non-profits, and government agencies such as Virginia Career Works. She gave us the details for a few upcoming virtual information sessions and talked about how anyone can start/return to college virtually or in-person. She also busted a few myths about financial aid and learning ability.
