Pictured above is Esther Bold, Master's Degree candidate from Southern Nazarene University, and Jeremy Nikel, Master's in Social Work candidate, at the beginning of their last week of their internships. These two have grown so much and all of us at the Mental Health Association in Tulsa are so very proud of them. They have done fabulous work and both will be great additions to the profession. While we have had a significant impact on their development toward becoming helping professionals, they have in turn profoundly impacted us with their enthusiasm to learn and their willingness to wade into the deep waters of difficult situations. Esther and Jeremy have displayed their grit and determination to struggle with distresses and difficulties, and both have strived to grow internally to improve their practice skills. They will be missed, but something tells me they won't be far away. Anyone looking for two great young professionals with great personal/professional qualities and character should take a hard look at these two. It is only a matter of time and they will both be in significant demand for their talent and services. Esther and Jeremy...We will miss you two. God's speed.
