The Seton Hill University (SHU) Social Work Club was named Organization of the Year at the Seton Hill Government Association Leadership Dinner held on Monday, April 16 2007.
�It’s very exciting and very rewarding to be recognized for all the work we�ve done,� said Jennifer Sherbo, a junior and president of the club.
Over the course of the school year, the Social Work Club has decorated eggs with the Sisters of Charity at Caritas Christi, baked for the troops, visited children at the emergency shelter and at the Children’s Institute, donated to the men’s missionary in Latrobe, and were active members in the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization.
�I was surprised at how many events and all the effort the Social Work Club did,� said Allison Hickman, a junior.
�I�ve seen the club grow and reach out to students and the campus and the community in so many ways, and I have experienced first hand how serious the members are about reaching out to those who have had a lot of pain in their lives,� said David Droppa, a professor of social work.
Droppa was also �shocked and amazed� when he was awarded Advisor of the Year.
�I never thought for a second that I would be nominated or deserve it. There are so many clubs and so many great advisors on this campus,� said Droppa.
Other awards and honors were presented at the Leadership Dinner, as well. Kristy Schweikarth, a senior and Setonian senior staff writer, was awarded Senator of the Year.
Sandra Davis, a SHU graduate of 1969 and a partner in the DeBernardo, Antoniono, McCabe, Davis, and DeDiana law firm in Greensburg was the guest speaker.
�I didn’tget here by planning and plotting. I did things…I guess my advice to you is to just go out there and lead,� said Davis.
