Social Work Students Win Policy Analysis Contest

Belmont Social Work Students and Faculty

On March 30 Belmont Social Work students Madelynn Griffin, Julianne Hughart, Mackenzie Martin, Vianney Muniz and Jacob Shelton won the statewide policy analysis contest sponsored as part of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Day on the Hill. 

This annual event, hosted by TN NASW, calls students to compete with other students in Bachelors of Social Work programs from around the state in presenting their analysis of bills currently being considered by the Tennessee General Assembly. Belmont students presented strong opposition to a bill proposing to withhold funding from public schools serving undocumented children.
