NOVA President, Anne Kress to Join Supervisor Rodney Lusk In Town Hall on Education Funding

Lee District Supervisor Rodney Lusk and Northern Virginia Community College President Anne M. Kress will come together for a town hall to discuss strategies on education funding. The virtual event will be held on October 28, at 6 p.m.

Supervisor Rodney L. Lusk is a native Virginian, a graduate of the University of Virginia, and has served his community as a Fairfax County employee for the past 31 years. From delivering human services along the Historic Richmond Highway Corridor, serving on the staff of two different members of the Board of Supervisors — Gerry Connolly and Kate Hanley — to his former role as national marketing director at the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority, there are few aspects of the county government that Rodney has not touched.

Beyond the scope of his professional work, Rodney advocates on behalf of our community through his work with a number of local boards and initiatives, including the Fairfax County Committee to Prevent and End Homelessness, Leadership Fairfax, the Southeast Fairfax Development Corporation, EMBARK Richmond Highway, among others. Additionally, Rodney previously served as a member of both the Fairfax County Planning Commission, as well as the Fairfax County Park Authority.

Anne M. Kress is the sixth president of Northern Virginia Community College, a role she began in January 2020. She has more than 25 years of experience in higher education, having served as a tenured faculty member in English, department chair, associate vice president, provost, and president at community colleges in Florida, New York, and now, Virginia.. At NOVA, Kress has focused on the role the college plays in providing meaningful access to educational and economic opportunity; connecting students to transformational, high quality programs; ensuring equity in student outcomes; building innovative industry and community partnerships; and increasing philanthropic support of student success.
