Leadership Fairfax Honors 7 Community Leaders

Leadership Fairfax announced its 18th annual Northern Virginia Leadership Awards recipients last week. The awards recognize regional, trustee, non-profit, corporate and educational leaders in the region.

Jim Holcombe and Gloria Rubin, who work at J.E.B. Stuart High School, were awarded the Educational Leadership Award for their work with the school through the Rotary Interact Club and for their partnership with the community.

Holcombe and Rubin have been active in the community beyond their roles as a social studies teacher and counselor, respectively.

Every year they engage with 70 – 100 students from Stuart and provide them with the opportunity to become civic leaders, participate in community service and training sessions and receive support and scholarship opportunities for college applications.

The other honorees were Mary Agee, President and CEO of Northern Virginia Family Service, who was awarded the Regional Leadership Award; Steve Gladis, PhD, CEO of Steve Gladis Leadership Partners, who was awarded the Trustee Leadership Award; Operation: Homestretch and its executive director Christopher Fay, who were awarded the Non-Profit Leadership Award; and Tim Sargeant of Dominion Resources, who was awarded the Corporate Leadership Award.

The award recipients will be honored at the Northern Virginia Leadership Awards luncheon at Waterford at Fair Oaks on Thursday, Nov. 6. For more information, visit
