Morehead State student completes practicum with Girl Scouts!

Jessica Huffman is a Junior at Morehead State University majoring in Social Work.  When she received the list of approved practicum sites she was thrilled to see the Girl Scout listed.  What attracted her to our agency was the opportunity to work with a program that was addressing the issue of bullying in the schools, opportunity to work with the school system and the experience of working directly with girls.  Jessica plans to use her degree as a School Social Worker so this experience was a perfect fit.  Jessica commented, “ Working with the girls in this anti-bullying program has been a challenge but the experience has been priceless in the way it has improved my communication skills and dealing with group dynamics.  The experience has definitely added to my professional development.”  Jessica has been doing programs at Catlettsburg Elementary, Crabbe Elementary and Safe Harbor.
