Members in the News

by Gloria Aguilar

The Big Bend Unit of the Florida Chapter of NASW selected
Dr. Gloria Duran Aguilar as Social Worker of the Year. She was nominated by her friend and colleague, Dr. Brenda Jarmon, who is also on the faculty at Florida A&M University. Dr. Aguilar was recognized for her political
activities and advocacy during the past year, beginning with the Florida One March which was a protest against Governor Bush's Executive Order to eliminate affirmative action from higher education and state government contracts.

Dr. Aguilar also was instrumental in organizing social
work students at FAMU to become involved in various election campaigns, as well as their participation in the demonstrations following the election returns. She
also served as the Campaign Treasurer for fellow social
worker Karen Woodall, BSW, who ran for the Florida State House. Gloria served as the President of the FL-NASW PACE for three years until December 2000, at which
point she was appointed as Legislative Chair for the
Florida Chapter. In addition, one of Gloria's students, Priscilla Hall, was selected Social Work Student of the Year for her political activities.
