Lord and Lady Fairfax

The Lord and Lady Fairfax Awards Program yearly honors two volunteer leaders from each Magisterial District. The honorees are selected for their outstanding volunteer service in their home districts or for an act of heroism. This year's Lord and Lady are introduced below, and at the bottom of this page is a list of all the honorees from Mount Vernon.

Marcia Hanson, Lady Fairfax 2016

Marcia, who served as the chief aide and environmental representative for former Supervisor Gerry Hyland, has been a tireless champion for residents of the Mount Vernon District for three decades. She has been instrumental in transforming the Lorton Community into a vibrant, exciting, and more livable community by advocating for the closing of the prison, the addition of new schools, and the development of a championship golf course, new parklands, and the Workhouse Arts Center. As a community advocate, Ms. Hanson worked to ensure the county’s mass burn facility had the best environmental safeguards, and she pushed to close the I-95 county landfill. In 1984, she established the Federation of Lorton Communities, which evolved into the South County Federation. Ms. Hanson’s continuous and energetic efforts have left an indelible mark on the Lorton landscape.

Larry Clark, Lord Fairfax 2016

Larry has contributed greatly to the community of Spring Hill, where he has served as chair of its Transition Committee and its Community Relations Committee, as well as President of its Board of Directors. In these and other roles—including Vice President of the South County Federation—Mr. Clark has developed a reputation as someone who can effectively bring together parties to make meaningful and lasting progress. Specifically, Mr. Clark was instrumental in advocating for the transformation of Lorton Prison into the present-day project known as Liberty Crest, as well as in halting the expansion of the ESI construction debris landfill. Larry’s commitment, dedication, and outstanding leadership exemplify the characteristics of the 2016 Mount Vernon District Lord Fairfax award.
