During the spring 2016 honors convocation, members of the Class of 2016 were recognized for excellence in scholarship and citizenship. The social work faculty selected Kelsey Nelson for this year’s George Williams Legacy Social Work Award because she exhibited the spirit of George Williams in her commitment to academic excellence in the social work program and integrity in assisting her clients as an international, private and foster care adoption intern at Lutheran Social Services of Illinois.
As an executive officer of the AU Social Work Association, Kelsey collaborated with undergraduate and graduate social work students to organize and participate in several service projects and fundraising events. Like George Williams, Nelson was known for her generous service to social work students and the communities in which she works.
