Tech High has heart for homeless pets

December 26, 2008

The recent Home 4 the Holidays donation from Washington County Technical High School staff members proved to be not only generous but adorable. 

When a representative from the Humane Society of Washington County (HSWC) came to pick up the donation, Stanley Corbeil, Assistant Principal Christine Corbeil's Yorkshire terrier, was on hand to add a delightful twist. Wearing a light blue coat with faux fur trim, Stanley proudly perched inside the giant stocking that was filled with goodies for the homeless pets at the shelter. 

True animal lovers, Technical High School secretary Roberta Barkley, counselor Robin Handler, special education teacher Mary Ann Griffith and Christine Corbeil wanted to help the homeless pets at the shelter. 

"We are really happy that we could do this for the animals," said Barkley, who organized the collection. 

HSWC Executive Director Paul Miller took his own dog, Scottish terrier Duphy, to meet students at Clear Spring Elementary School, where he was a big hit.

"This seems to be the day that Home 4 the Holidays goes to the dogs," Miller said with a laugh.
