On Friday, the University of Kentucky College of Social Work will honor distinction in the College of Social Work at the Evening of Excellence, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Gatton Student Center Ballroom.
The evening will include the induction of state Rep. Susan Westrom into the Social Work Hall of Fame. Westrom, who represents the 79th District, received her bachelor’s degree from the UK College of Social Work in 1993 and a master’s degree in 1995. After her graduation she directed advocacy efforts and marketing for a foster care treatment agency before running for state representative in 1998.
The event, now in its second year, will also feature Unsung Heroes awards and recognize scholarship recipients, professorships, and donors.
