Vaughn inducted into Alabama Social Work Hall of Fame

MONTEVALLO—Dr. Susan Vaughn, professor of social work and director of the social work program at the University of Montevallo emerita, was inducted into the State of Alabama Social Work Hall of Fame Sept. 14.

Vaughn, a University of Montevallo alumna who served UM for most of her career, joined the faculty there in 1975. She taught classes including human behavior, disability and rehabilitation, and community service as well as many courses and practicums in social work.

A champion for social work education as well as for those receiving the benefits of social work, Vaughn has been an active member of the University of Montevallo community. She chaired or served on numerous councils and committees including the reaccreditation committee for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the Strategic Planning Committee and the Council of Department Chairs. She also has served the broader community in organizations such as United Way, Alabama Child Welfare Consortium, Birmingham AIDS Outreach and Shelby Emergency Assistance.

Vaughn joins four other University of Montevallo alumnae in the State of Alabama Social Work Hall of Fame. The late Louise Pittman was inducted in 1995, Barbara G. Bonfield in 2002, and Betty Glasscock and Martha Joyce Greathouse in 2003.

The State of Alabama Social Work Hall of Fame honors social workers in the areas of education/research and practice/administration, retired or deceased, who are acclaimed by their peers and colleagues for their professional status and exemplary leadership, creativity, contribution to the knowledge base and practice of social work, and influence in the life of the community.
