Joshua W. Sullivan, son of Sandra and George Sullivan of Clarksville, was one of 23 fellows chosen from 160 applications, filed by members from the society's 237 chapters, to receive the scholarship.

Each year the Margaret Louise Cuninggim Fellowship awards a stipend of $7,500 to one fellow of the society, seven stipends of $5,000 and 15 stipends of $3,000 to people of significance to Alpha Lambda Delta in pursuit of graduate study.

Sullivan will graduate this May with a bachelor's degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. The scholarship will help fund his tuition for graduate school at the University of Tennessee-Memphis College of Pharmacy.

Alpha Lambda Delta is a national society that honors academic excellence during a student's first year at college. Since its inception in 1924, the society has acquired 230 chapters across the United States and has initiated over 650,000 students. Through the fellowship program, students have been awarded in excess of $1,400,000.
