The Dr. Glenda Earwood Graduate Fellowship 

At the June 2015 National Council meeting, a 24th graduate fellowship in the amount of $5,000 was established in honor of retiring Executive Director, Dr. Glenda Earwood.  Dr. Earwood served as Executive Director of Alpha Lambda Delta since 1997. During her tenure she installed or reactivated over 85 chapters, initiated the society's one millionth member, and spearheaded the "$90,000 for the 90th" campaign - fundraising $90,000 in celebration of the Association's 90th birthday.

Dr. Earwood was a first generation college student who was initiated as an Alpha Lambda Delta member at Auburn University.  She later earned her Ph.D. at Florida State University.
