"I would like to thank ECU and the College of Human Ecology for providing me with a strong foundation and the confidence to pursue my goals of giving back to the community.  The school of social work at ECU is unique because while it allows for concentrations it also provides its students with the vast breadth of the field of social work.  This allows students to develop a greater sense of what careers are available to them upon graduation while increasing their book and experiential knowledge base."
