MIDDLETOWN — Lord Fairfax Community College searched the country for a dean of learning for humanities, mathematics and social sciences.

Phenix retired in June 2008 as principal of Page County High School, a position he had held since 1992. At the same time, Phenix retired from the Lord Fairfax Community College board, on which he had served since 2000.

Phenix has worked as a high school teacher in New Jersey, an assistant professor at Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania, a Danish and English teacher in Denmark, and teacher, assistant principal and principal in Wisconsin.
