THOMASVILLE — Southwest Georgia Technical College (SWGTC) recently added Jennifer Reynolds to its full-time faculty for its Social Work Assistant program.

“Jennifer is very passionate about the field of social work. Her extensive background will be an asset to our college and benefit the future of our Social Work program. We are fortunate to have Jennifer on our team,” said Dennis Lee, SWGTC dean of Academic Affairs.

In her new role, Reynolds is responsible for designing curriculum/coursework, serving as the advisor to students in the program, instructing courses, and recruiting new students.

“Social work is my passion! I love helping others. I am so excited about my new position here at Southwest Georgia Technical College. This platform gives me a greater opportunity to impart to others what I have learned while working in this field. It is my desire to change the world by motivating each student I come in contact with to be the best social worker they can be. I look forward to bringing real-life experiences to the classroom setting to make learning fun and meaningful. I am ready to take this program to the next level,” commented Reynolds.

Reynolds received her Bachelor of Science in Social Work from Thomas University in 2005. Shortly after, she graduated from Valdosta State University with her master’s degree in Social Work. She has over 11 years of experience in the social services arena in various capacities.
