Social Work Senior Honored by Student Government Association

Social Work Senior Honored by Student Government Association

Eric Wills, a graduating senior from the Department of Social Work, was recently honored as an inductee into the Student Government Association’s Society for Distinguished Graduates in recognition of his passion and commitment to campus life as well as to the betterment of the broader community.

A bright, civic-minded student, Mr. Wills effectively balanced his work and family obligations with his service activities and academic commitments.

He was an active member of the Social Work Student Union providing volunteer hours, participating in community events, and engaging in fund raising efforts for local community-based organizations; and as an intern at the Department for Community Based Services (DCBS), Mr. Wills worked with Warren County families to support their stability and independence, and developed an innovative project to extend public transportation options to families receiving services from DCBS.

Complementary to this work, he created the first-of-its-kind Arabic language study group at WKU in his role as a Resident Assistant. He worked summers at the Center for Courageous Kids in Scottsville, providing support to medically challenged children and their families. And, as a member of the ALIVE Center’s Student Ambassadors of Service program, he was involved in a variety of service opportunities including events related to raising awareness about hunger and homelessness; and wrote an article featured in the ALIVE Center’s Progression Through Partnerships magazine about the local nonprofit organization, HOTEL INC., that works to promote and sustain families in the region.

Presently, he is seeking an entry level caseworker position to gain some additional experience in the field and will be applying to begin a social work graduate program in the fall. Ultimately, he plans to provide clinical services to military families.

Mr. Wills exemplifies the qualities and characteristics the Department of Social Work hopes to cultivate in its graduates. And, as a representative of the College and the University, we should be confident that he will continue to be a civic-minded leader who will bring the same passion and commitment he has had as a student to his work in the community.

Congratulations to Eric Wills!
