It is the school social worker's role in the school to support students with their social and emotional needs. School social workers are also familiar with available resources. I have been at B-PC as a school social worker since 2014. I enjoy getting to know the students that I meet here. It is my hope that each student at B-PC is able to achieve his or her highest academic, social and emotional potential to build relationships and futures they desire.
Hello, thank you for stopping by our page! My name is Laura Wilhite and I am one of the school social workers at Bushnell-Prairie City schools. Last school year I was an intern and I was hired in February of 2020. I attended Western Illinois University and received my bachelors degree in social work from there in 2018. I graduated from Illinois State University in May of 2020 with my masters degree in social work. I am a member of the Illinois Association of School Social Workers.
