Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Social Work Program
Name: Rachel Durkovic
Major: Social Work
Hometown: Elkton, Maryland
Fact: I have 3 sisters.
I chose to come to Belhaven because... this is where God directed me. I was looking at Belhaven for dual enrollment, and I started talking with a Belhaven student and intern, Ellie, who I later had the opportunity to go to Ukraine with for six weeks as interns. She and I started talking, and she said that she attended Belhaven. I was interested and had the opportunity to visit the school and the rest is history.
The relationship that has meant the most to me while attending Belhaven... is with the teachers. I have really appreciated the opportunities I have had to talk and get to know Dr. Gaddis and Mrs. Johnson, and have learned a great deal from them.
Because of my degree from Belhaven... I can eventually open up my own private practice for counseling, as well as be a missionary overseas.
One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Growth
