The Sullivan Scholarship

In the three minute video below you can learn about Mrs. Sullivan who founded the scholarship and inspires us every day. You will learn about what the scholarship provides, see a bit of our beautiful campus, and hear from a couple of our scholars.

Ruby Sullivan in 2012

Ruby Sullivan was an inspiring educator. In 2012 Valdosta State held a reception to honor Mrs. Sullivan’s lifetime of service and announce the Sullivan Scholar Scholarship. It was a very important day for Valdosta State University. The video below features Mrs. Sullivan talking about her time at Valdosta State University when she was a student learning to be a teacher (and the name of our school was Georgia State Woman’s College at Valdosta), her work as an educator, and her vision for the Sullivan Scholarship.
