Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) will host the grand opening for the Corron Community Development Center on its Middletown Campus. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 23. Light refreshments and self-guided building tours will be available after the event.
The Corron Community Development Center is a 30,000-gross-square-foot building that will serve as a multi-purpose facility to support Workforce Solutions and Continuing Education, the Small Business Development Center, the LFCC Educational Foundation Inc., and community events. The facility will provide additional training opportunities for area residents and the ever-increasing business community in the LFCC service region.
In addition, the Old Dominion University (ODU) Teletechnet program is partnering with LFCC to occupy a portion of the building, allowing expanded distance learning opportunities.
The two-story facility includes classrooms, office space and a 500-seat conference center. Flexible classroom space can be used for workforce training programs, professional development course offerings, meetings or breakout areas for larger gatherings. When configured to form one large room, this space will support a variety of activities and functions, including conferences, meetings and other special events.
The Corron Community Development Center is named for the late Judge W. LeRoy Corron and the late Mrs. Shirley Corron and stands as a testament to the couple’s lifelong philanthropy. In December 1999, Mrs. Corron supplied the largest gift in the College's history when she made a substantial contribution toward LFCC’s building project in honor of her husband.
