When Sofia Lorraine Mico learned that she would be assigned to the Edison Public Library for her senior internship, she didn’t understand why a library would need a student majoring in social work.
Yet within a few weeks, the Rutgers senior found herself helping a woman who walked into the library looking for a homeless shelter. A deaf man living in a hotel asked where he could find an apartment that accepted federal housing vouchers. And a woman who is not a native English speaker couldn’t fill out an application for benefits.
After a long road of addiction, imprisonment, cancer, homelessness, and loss, Gina Harvell, a student in our Intensive Weekend MSW Program, was awarded Rutgers' first Lifelong Learner of the Year Award, which was created specifically for Harvell.
