Carolyn Godlove Glaize Nursing Scholarship

A Winchester native, Carolyn Glaize enrolled at LFCC in 1970, the year it opened. Juggling work and school, Glaize graduated in 1976 with an Associate Degree in Science. Having accomplished her educational goal, Glaize continued her career at Mount Weather Emergency Assistance Center, becoming the first woman to serve as deputy director of the Mount Weather Management Division and deputy senior resident manager for the Mount Weather facility. Glaize was responsible for the day-to-day operations of Mount Weather, which boasted more than 1,000 employees and a budget totaling more than $82 million. She retired in 2000 after 37 years of service. At that time, she had reached the GS-15 level, which is the highest civil servant level in the federal government. Glaize received the Lord Fairfax Community College Distinguished Alumni Award in 2006. Her husband, George Glaize, Jr., is an accomplished businessman and entrepreneur. Together, they wish to support nursing students at Lord Fairfax Community College.
