While students around the globe are wrapping up their finals and preparing for graduation, the platform for recognizing students, and their accomplishments, has shifted.

In April, the College of Social Work (CoSW) held the 2020 Honors and Awards Ceremony. The ceremony, which occurred virtually, was live-streamed on YouTube.

During the ceremony, several awards were presented. BASW student Sabri Williams received the Dean’s Service Award. Students Tanya Brewer, Rebekah Davis, and Luke Ramey were named Outstanding BASW Student awardees. The Outstanding MSW Student award was given to Travis Adams, William ‘Ace’ Jackson III, and Shaniek Tose. Ace Jackson III and Luke Ramey were the student speakers for the event.
To finish the semester at such an unprecedented time is truly commendable. Please join CoSW in congratulating all of our students for an outstanding semester and THANKING all those who made their journey possible.
