Senator Begich Visits Elementary School

August 30, 2010

The students of one lucky elementary school in Anchorage got a special treat today. Not only did they get a chance to work with service dogs-in-training, but they got to meet their very own United States Senator, Mark Begich. Senator Begich attended a school classroom this afternoon and watched as students from pre-school through 5th grade ran service dogs-in-training through their commands. The therapeutic service dog training offered through Alaska Assistance Dogs promotes positive behavioral models, respect, self-confidence and leadership skills in elementary school students. This month Begich has called for education reform reflecting Alaska’s needs. Thank you for visiting the students, Senator Begich!
