The Jo Anne J. Trow Scholarship was started in 1988, in honor of a past President of Alpha Lambda Delta. Jo Anne J. Trow is the former Vice President for Student Services at Oregon State University. Trow served Alpha Lambda Delta as a District Advisor from 1974 to 1979, as Secretary from 1979 to 1983, as President-elect from 1984 to 1985, and as President from 1985 to 1988. During her presidency, the Society’s governing body, the National Council, was restructured to provide more streamlined operations.
Alpha Lambda Delta (ALD) is an honor society that recognizes students’ academic success in their first year at a college or university. Founded in 1924 and active on 280 campuses, Alpha Lambda Delta inducts 22,000 members annually and has over 1.3 million lifetime members.
