LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - March is National Social Work month, a time to celebrate one of this country's most important, but often most under appreciated professions.

Spalding University Professor Jay Miller explained, "There's a lot of students there's a lot of practitioners here we really wanted to open up our celebration to the community and let the community know that as social workers we are here and we are making a difference."
