RALEIGH, NC – North Carolina State University student Tiffany Deans has been awarded the 2014 Toby Brown Award from the National Association of Social Workers North Carolina Chapter (NASW-NC).


The award recognizes the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) student of North Carolina who best reflects and represents the ethics, values, and passion in the field of social work through exemplary performance in social work coursework, field placement, student social work associations, and community organizations.


This award program was established in memory of and to honor Dr. James S. “Toby” Brown who died in 1995. He was an Assistant Professor of Social Work at North Carolina State University and was a highly recognized educator and practitioner.


Tiffany Deans graduated as a Bachelor of Social Work and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from North Carolina State University in December 2013. Tiffany has worked in a broad range of settings to provide services and support to adolescents and families, including adolescents with eating disorders, individuals with autism and developmental disabilities, and adolescents involved with the Juvenile Justice System. Tiffany has gone above and beyond her duties as a service provider, by taking it upon herself to learn Spanish, in order to better serve her Spanish-speaking clients. Tiffany has worked for Veritas Collaborative, the Autism Society of North Carolina, Easter Seals, and the Durham Family Exchange Club, and has volunteered at The Carying Place and New Leaf Behavioral Health.


Tiffany has been commended and held in high regards by her peers, faculty, and direct supervisors, who have identified her as a huge asset to her school, clients, community, and the social work profession. She has been recognized as an enthusiastic, committed, and compassionate social worker.


In order to advance her career and continue to provide outstanding support for adolescents and families, Tiffany will be pursing her Master of Social Work at North Carolina State University.
