Somerset Regional Conference and CEU Book Club!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF OUR MAY 2017 SOCIAL WORK GRADUATES ACROSS KENTUCKY!!  May this week be the beginning of celebrations, reflections, and well deserved sleep!  You have studied beyond what you thought you could ever do, sacrificed more than you ever imagined, and succeeded in joining the best profession possible.  This is your time to appreciate all of the hard work it took to get to this day, and to look ahead to all of the wonderful, outrageous, frustrating, and inspiring things that come with being a social worker.  We are proud of you, and honored to call you our peers!

We couldn’t pick just one quote to honor you after your years of hard work and commitment to your studies, so enjoy 20 that we hope will inspire you as you move from student to professional social worker! PS  Get your license and join NASW if you haven’t already!!
