SALEM - Cheryl Price of Pendleton has been appointed by Gov. Ted Kulongoski to a four-year term on the Board of Clinical Social Workers.
Price, the first person from the northeastern Oregon to serve on the board, works in the Hermiston and Boardman offices of the Umatilla-Morrow Head Start program. The state board works on the governor's behalf to protect the public by maintaining a strong code of ethics for the clinical social workers licensed by the state.
Price said she is "pleased to be able to represent the perspective of rural Oregonians" in her work with the board. She received her Masters in Social Work from San Francisco State University in 1971 and has been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oregon since 1990. She has more than 30 years of professional experience working with children and families as a social worker.
