 Honors contract student"For the Contract Challenge, I learned first-hand about dog adoption and dog treatment in America by volunteering over 70 hours at the Franklin County Dog Shelter. I was able to make a small but invaluable impact on the lives of many dogs and adopters in my community while continuing to cultivate a lifelong passion."
