A key part of the school is service. Every student has to earn twenty-five service hours a year to equal a hundred service hours total in their high school career. One way some students completed their hours were to train a service dog.

Principal Jim Franz had the opportunity to witness the program in his first couple of month at the school.

“I do not have any involvement in this program, but I it is a wonderful addition to the school,” Franz said.

Though the school currently has no service dog, students were more than willing to talk about their experiences.

Senior Grace Ritchie had a service dog during her sophomore year of high school.

“I  Had JJ for a little over a year. I had seen high school students  have a service dog when I was little and had always wanted to do it so when I got to high school I decided to look into it. It was something I had always wanted to do because I love animals. Having a service dog was awesome, though I must say I got very lucky with JJ. He was so well behaved and I rarely had to get on to him so he made my job easy. He went with me everywhere which was awesome because I always had someone with me.” Ritchie said.

Zoe Johnson (12)  did not have her own service dog, but she takes them to school so they learn in a school environment.

“I love having my service dogs. They’re so lovable and very intelligent. It takes a while to get used to all the commands they are supposed to know, but once you master that, so can they!” Johnson said.

In conclusion, though the school has not had a service dog this year, they have impacted the school.
