The Northern Virginia Community College Annandale Campus will host a Heritage Celebration at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 22, 8333 Little River Turnpike, Annandale, VA 22003.

NOVA President Scott Ralls will dedicate a sign at the historic site on campus where the original farmhouse once stood. The property was sold to the Commonwealth of Virginia for the Annandale Campus by the Pruitt family. 

The dedication will feature special guests including Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and NOVA Alumna Sharon Bulova and the first Virginia Community College System Chancellor Dr. Dana Hamel. The dedication will be followed by a reception and a special presentation by the Annandale Campus Lyceum Committee in the Mark R. Warner Student Services Building. 

Mathematics Professor David Conroy – who has taught at NOVA since 1968 – and Adjunct Professor Floyd Schwartz, who has taught continuously at NOVA since 1967, will also conduct the Lyceum Legacy Lecture with the participation of Hamel.

The ceremony is free and open to the public. NOVA alumni and members of the media are also welcome to attend.
