Congratulations to our

2023 Colorado School Social Work Trailblazer of the Year:

Leah Williamson!

Leah is a school social worker at Risley International Academy of Innovation in Pueblo School District 60. Leah was nominated by multiple individuals for going above and beyond to help the students and staff at Risley.

Leah was hired last year as one of the first and only social workers in the district. Her impact was felt immediately as she began advocating for students and being a support to students and the families who needed her most. The district quickly hired more social workers and she is still leading the team as a model for others. She goes above and beyond to help kids and the progress that students have made after working with her has been amazing to watch.

Leah makes many of the students at Risley feel safe, and so many of them like speaking with her about everyday things or things that have been bothering them. Leah was commended on having her door open for staff who may need a comforting ear to hear them and helpful feedback. Thank you, Leah, for always being there for your students and staff.

The Colorado School Social Work Association is honored to name you the

2023 School Social Work Trailblazer of the Year!
