North Carolina State University Master of Social Work Student Named
NASW-NC 2020 Presidents’ Award Recipient

 

(RALEIGH, NC) – The National Association of Social Workers North Carolina Chapter (NASW-NC) has named Paige Moore as the recipient of the 2020 NASW-NC Presidents’ Award for Master of Social Work (MSW) graduate students for the 2019-2020 academic year. Ms. Moore is a dedicated graduate student in the Master of Social Work (MSW) program at North Carolina State University (NC State) and a Graduate Teaching Assistant in NC State University’s Department of Social Work. She is the first student from NC State to receive the Presidents’ Award. 

 

The NASW-NC Presidents’ Award recognizes Ms. Moore’s leadership within her Department, her dedication to her community, and her commitment to improving the social work profession through extensive research.

 

Throughout her time in the Master of Social Work (MSW) program at NC State, Ms. Moore has proven herself to be exceptional. In addition to working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant within the Department, she also teaches a Social Welfare Policy course and serves as a Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) Research Assistant. Ms. Moore serves as a mentor for the Women of Welch (WOW) Living and Learning Village at NC State, through which she became involved with Running Start, an organization who seeks to help get young women elected to political office. Earlier this year, Ms. Moore was selected as a Running Start delegate to the Women Leaders Global Forum in Reykjavik, Iceland and co-facilitated a workshop on how young women can prepare to run for office.

 

Ms. Moore currently interns at the Raleigh Police Department within the Police Chief’s Office as part of the Research and Planning Unit. In this role, she is evaluating the recruitment and retention practices of the Raleigh Police Department and is working to develop a pilot program that focuses on a peer-support model for officers in the police academy. Her hard work at the Raleigh Police Department has not gone unnoticed. Sergeant Renae Lockhart describes Ms. Moore as “self-motivated, decisive, and confident,” and noted she has “become a member of the top tier management team,” in the short time she has been there.

 

Ms. Moore focuses her research on the importance of social workers on interprofessional teams, the effects of maternal stress on child health, and assisting lifelong learners as they apply for grant opportunities and education opportunities. Additionally, Ms. Moore is a NASW-NC Student Liaison representing NC State. Through this role, she connects NC State students to resources and utilizes the many resources and opportunities available through NASW-NC for professional growth and development.

 

Ms. Moore will be honored at the 2020 NASW-NC Ethics Conference and Awards Luncheon on Friday, March 20, 2020 at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh, NC.

 

The National Association of Social Workers North Carolina Chapter (NASW-NC) is a membership organization that promotes, develops, and protects the practice of social work and social workers. NASW-NC also seeks to enhance the effective functioning and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities through its work and advocacy.
