For its 50th anniversary, the School of Social Work celebrates the success of its alumni.
Sean Suib met Jeri Kiefel when she was 14 years old and living on the streets of Portland. She was one of the first teens to seek help at New Avenues for Youth, where Suib was a counselor. Kiefel came to trust Suib, but it took her three years to get off the streets. Today, at age 30, she has a good life, a full-time job and volunteers at New Avenues, where Suib—who earned a social work master's degree from PSU in 2000—is now executive director.
