Nearly 250 social workers and students gathered at Kilcawley Center Friday for breakfast and a morning filled with guest speakers and awards.

This is the 18th Social Work Day for the university.This event honors social workers in the Valley and gives YSU students a chance to network before they graduate.

“It’s a homecoming. The graduates come back, our alumni, students and our field educators and I always tell the students make sure you mingle and network because that may be your future job out there by meeting someone today,” said LISW-S professor Shirley Keller.

The Master of Social Work program at YSU has grown from six students in 2004 to 70.
