This Friday, March 27 at the NASW Alamo’s Annual Social Work Luncheon, Bryce Boddie, Master of Social Work student at the University of Texas at San Antonio, will receive the National Association of Social Workers Alamo Chapter’s 2015 Social Work Student of the Year Award. The award honors a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) who exemplifies the best of the profession’s values and achievements through specific accomplishments. The award recipients must demonstrate outstanding leadership and making a difference in the areas of advocacy for clients, social work practice, program development, administration and research.
Bryce Boddie embodies many of the traits of an outstanding social worker. He started a non-profit community garden in Boerne, Texas in collaboration with several other non-profits, and has single-handedly raised more than $10,000 for an orphanage in Ethiopia. In December of 2014, he supervised the delivery of funds and goods and brought tons of other donations for the orphanage. The orphanage used some of the funds to buy a school bus. Congratulations to Bryce Boddie, a leader and inspiration to many.
