Virtual Graduation Celebrates 2020 Graduates

 In News & Events, Press

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since we had to make the difficult decision to send our March 2020 residential students home early and forego the graduation ceremony so many have enjoyed in the past. Fortunately, despite difficult circumstances, we were able to transition to an expanded Home Training program and continue to place our exceptional dogs with those who need them most throughout the year. The graduation experience, however, was still missing, so in this age of Zoom, the solution was to transition from a live in-person event to a live virtual event.

On Saturday, March 6, 2021,  we launched our first Virtual Graduation to honor all the graduates of 2020, who missed out on a well-deserved graduation ceremony and we are excited to share it with you!

We’re grateful for your ongoing support and dedication. YOU made it possible to bring together these amazing guide dog teams that we are celebrating.
