Otis has graduated!

The Seeing Eye Certificate


In Spring 2008, the honors scholars created a Vision Awareness Campaign for that semester's National Collegiate Honors Council's National Honors Service Day project.  The students invited two organizations to campus to share how they assist those that require assistance through audio books and guide dogs.  At the event, the scholars collected funds to help sponsor the training of a puppy through The Seeing Eye, the oldest existing dog guide school in the world.  We were thrilled to learn that our funds helped support The Seeing Eye puppy Otis (pictured above).

Recently, we learned that Otis has officially graduated from his training program!  (His graduation photo is below.)  Otis passed the program with flying colors and has been placed with a 47 year-old man from New Jersey.  Otis is his first Seeing Eye dog.

Otis Graduates!
