Better Living for Seniors Hillsborough is pleased to announce the 2020 scholarship recipient, Ms. Allison Clark. Ms. Clark is currently attending USF’s School of Social Work and plans to graduate in the Spring of 2021. When asked about her career and educational goals for the future, she states, “It is my hope as a soon-to-be social worker that I can help end the challenges that seniors face in the pursuit of a living a full, happy life. I intend on working with my local government as a social worker in the Aging Services Department because of my experience with working with this population. Pursuing my social work degree and winning this scholarship means I can take care of someone’s grandparent for them in ways they may not be able to.”
Ms. Clark has interned at Brandon Regional Hospital and Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources Department. She has also worked as a caregiver at Brookdale Senior Living in Manatee County.
