Date:7/20/2010

Meghan Baker, a J.D./M.S.W. dual degree student in the Law Center and Graduate College of Social Work at the University of Houston, has been named Social Work Student of the Year by the National Association of Social Workers Texas Chapter (NASW/TX). Baker will be honored Oct. 9 at the organization's annual conference at the Westin Galleria in Houston.

The first is her dedication to service, volunteering and advocating for three distinct service organizations while undertaking a rigorous full-time dual degree and working part time.
