MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Ginger Scott, Ph.D., of the West Virginia University School of Pharmacy is the recipient of the 2009 Lambda Kappa Sigma (LKS) Advisor Award. The award recognizes her outstanding contributions to the pharmacy fraternity.

Lambda Kappa Sigma is an international, professional pharmacy fraternity open to undergraduate and graduate pharmacy students and practicing pharmacists. Scott was nominated for the LKS Advisor Award by her student chapter.
