Jerry L. Satterwhite Hall of Fame


Jerry L. Satterwhite


We know of no one more highly deserving of the Hall of Fame honor than Jerry L. Satterwhite. He is past Chief of Social Work Service, Senior SWALT Preceptor, VHA SW Leadership Council Chairperson, Education Committee Chairman, and Association of VA Social Workers officer. He has most recently served as Congressional Liaison for the Association of VA Social Workers. He was instrumental in getting Hybrid Title 38 legislation passed.

He has guided & mentored the VA Social Work profession, along with countless VA Social Workers and other professionals. He has actively promoted excellence in Social Work. He has represented the profession well in the community, such as through the Society of Social Work Leaders in Health Care as well as the Association of Social Work Boards.

Jerry has served on the Alabama board for more than ten years. He has served on numerous committees and worked on national practice and training initiatives. Just as importantly, he has always offered friendship and support, wherever he goes. It is with enduring gratitude and great pleasure that we unanimously induct “Big Jer” into the Association’s Hall of Fame.
