SOcial Work Alumni Testimonials
Abbey Beardsley ’18, master of social work candidate at Baylor University’s Diana R. Garland School of Social Work, intern with with the Supportive and Palliative Care Team at Baylor Scott and White in Temple
“The HPU social work program was the best thing that has ever happened to me. If you have any interest in integrating faith into your social work practice, HPU is the place to be. Being a student in the HPU social work department gives you the platform to advocate for change within the school and the community in ways that you normally would not have.”
Becca Blohm ’17, master of social work candidate at Baylor University’s Diana R. Garland School of Social Work, intern with Providence Hospice in Waco
“HPU provided a personal and positive learning environment. The relationships I made with both faculty and students are still with me today. I met my current roommate in the social work department, as well as many of my closest friends. The small student to professor relationship allowed for more personal growth, both in and out of the classroom.”
Judy Bullard ’10, counselor at the Ark Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Shelter, LMSW
“The HPU social work department helped prepare me for success in my career through the advanced curriculum on social work theories, human behavior and through ethical standards expected from the profession. I felt totally prepared for my master’s program – in fact, I felt advanced in the knowledge that I acquired from my bachelor’s program at HPU.
I appreciate the level of knowledge that I acquired in my social work program. I did not expect to continue to have a mentor that has made a huge difference in my career. Thank you, Toni Damron, for your continued support, guidance and for the extra time you have taken out of your busy schedule to mentor, listen, reassure and your continued commitment to your students!”
