First Stroud Scholarship presented to medical student

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-  A new scholarship has been awarded to its first recipient.

Arkansas State University Biology Major Devin Reed just received the Stroud Scholarship through the Craighead County Community Fund. The scholarship was made possible through a generous donation from Alma Stroud.

Reed said he's grateful to both the Strouds and the Community Foundation. "Very excited about being awarded this. I'm very thankful for the Strouds. This will make a big impact in the cost of a medical education," Reed said.

The Stroud Scholarship is worth $10,000. Reed said he plans to attend medical school in the fall.
