NJDOC Shines a Spotlight on Its Social Workers
The New Jersey Department of Corrections recognized National Professional Social Worker Month, which is celebrated each March, by hosting a March 21 program at its Central Office headquarters in honor of the department’s social workers. NJDOC Commissioner Gary M. Lanigan was among the featured speakers.
The focal point of the gathering was the presentation of awards for accomplishments during the 2013 calendar year. The most notable winners included Monica Tyson (Social Worker of the Year, Northern State Prison) and Southern State Correctional Facility (Social Services Department of the Year).
