NASW Board of Directors
Director, BSW Student
Alexis Gallegos is a student at Eastern Washington
University (EWU). He serves in a volunteer capacity as secretary with the EWU
Chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS). His work
responsibilities include communicating with members, strategic planning,
mentoring students, and leading small groups. Additionally, he is a volunteer
with The Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network Hotline and Raíz of Planned
Parenthood of Washington and North Idaho.
Of special honor and significance is
Gallegos’ induction to the NSLS. Gallegos considers this honor as being applicable
to the social work field because the induction program teaches the foundations
of leadership and as an inducted member, he has learned multiple communication
styles and servant leadership as ways to improve communities. He has also learned how to stay on a path of
continual self-improvement and service to others, two of the ideals that are found
in social work.
