Spotlight on Alums

Two alums of the UT College of Social Work were honored by the Tennessee Chapter of the National Association of Social Work during this year's Social Work Month. Dorothy Dobbins received the Social Worker Lifetime Achievement Award and Donita Denton received the Social Work of the Year Award. One alum was honored by the West Tennessee Branch of The National Association of Social Workers. Renee Brown is the winner of the West Branch 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award.


Karen Sowers, Dean of the College, is extremely proud that our alums are being recognized for excellence in their fields. "Dorothy Dobbins, Donita Denton, and Renee Brown represent Social Work at its very best. They are leaders and care providers of the highest order. Congratulations!"
