Lord Fairfax Community College officially became Laurel Ridge Community College.

Small ceremonies at its campuses in Middletown, Fauquier and Page County marked the name change. 

In July of 2021, the State Board for Community Colleges approved the name Laurel Ridge.

This followed the boards decision to review the suitability of their name at all colleges in Virginia Community College System.

College Board Chair Michael Wenger said at the Page County naming ceremony, “The past year, they have been building the foundation, not for an ending, but a beginning, and it starts right away.”
