Congratulations to our 4-H Winners!

Larisa Bohensky '20 and her canine friend Isabelle competed in last weekend's New Jersey 4-H Dog Show this past Saturday, where they took second place honors in the Seeing Eye division. 

The Bohensky family is working with our Morristown neighbor The Seeing Eye; Larisa is the primary trainer, raising Isabelle to work as a guide dog for the visually impaired. This is a 15-month long project; it began when the puppy was just seven weeks old, and will conclude in July when Isabelle will return to Seeing Eye ready to go to work as a service dog. The pair attend weekly meetings of Four-Footed Leaders, a club of Seeing Eye puppy raisers and their animals.

Larisa's commitment to service, compassion, and achievement embody Academy values. We were happy to welcome Isabelle to school recently, when she earned high marks for obedience and general lovableness.
