AURORA, Ill. – State Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, recently visited Aurora University and met with several classes of students who are studying in the School of Social Work and discussed the importance of making their voices heard in government.
“I enjoyed meeting with so many bright young men and women who are devoting their lives to serving our community,” Kifowit said. “The discussions I had with these dedicated individuals will stay with me as I advocate in Springfield on behalf of social workers in our community and the residents who rely on their care.”
Kifowit discussed with the students about the need to pass a fair and responsible budget that protects services for at risk women, children, and seniors. She also discussed her efforts to improve mental health services for Illinois veterans. Kifowit encouraged the students to stay involved and to make their voices heard in all levels of government.
“I am grateful that State Representative Kifowit is always willing to inspire and engage my university students,” said Dr. Don Phelps, Professor of Social Work. “Her honesty, humility and passion encourage my students, especially the young women, to envision themselves in leadership positions.”
