ASU to train Ware County social students

July 27, 2006

Albany -- A few south Georgia colleges are doing something about a statewide need for social workers.

Students at Waycross College will now be able to get a bachelor degree from Albany State's Social work program, without leaving Ware County. Professors from ASU will travel to Waycross College to offer the courses.

A recent survey from Defacs in Waycross showed that over 80 percent of their employees would be interested in the new program.  

"Defacs right now needs more social workers now than we can really supply. So we're trying to do a rush on this program," said Dr. Marilyn Spearman, ASU Social Work Program Director.

ASU's social work program has recently been deemed a model by the state.
