Alvin W. Boyd Scholarship Endowment
This scholarship in Pre-Pharmacy was established by Julia G. Boyd to encourage and help students at Tennessee Tech who desire to become pharmacists and to memorialize her beloved husband, Alvin W. Boyd, who died in 1998. Mr. Boyd owned and operated the Boyd Pharmacy in Cookeville for 35 years. He attended Tennessee Tech and graduated from Samford University with a degree in Pharmacy. Mr. Boyd was a charter member of the Cookeville Breakfast Rotary Club and an elder in the First Presbyterian Church USA.
Mr. and Mrs. Boyd were always very interested in education and had a strong desire to help young people of this region achieve an education and success in life. Mrs. Boyd is hopeful that this scholarship and other endowments she has established will achieve those goals.
Julia G. Boyd passed away in 2014.
