History of the Award
The Jo Anne J. Trow Award was started in 1988 to honor a past National President of Alpha Lambda Delta. Former Vice President for Student Services at Oregon State University, Jo Anne J. Trow served Alpha Lambda Delta as District VIII Advisor from 1974 to 1979, Secretary from 1979 to 1983, President-elect from 1984-1985, and as National President from 1985 to 1988. During her term as President, the National Council was restructured to provide a more streamlined operation. Originally, this award was established to give collegiate chapters of the Society an annual opportunity to reward an outstanding sophomore member of Alpha Lambda Delta with a stipend of $150.
