Therapy Dogs to Visit HCC Finals Week

(Henderson) KY-Four therapy dogs will visit the students and staff of HCC on Monday, May 2nd from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM. Weather permitting the dogs will be located on the Sullivan Tech Center patio, the alternate location will be HCC Library.

Therapy dogs provide a sense of relaxation and lower stress for people in stressful situations. Finals week can be a very stressful event for students, faculty and staff. The dogs will bring a sense of wellness and relaxation to campus on the first day of finals week.

John Morris, Instructor of Radio/TV at USI, will bring his Newfoundland, “Tiny.” Brian and Lisa Hester will bring their yellow labs “Sophie” and “Raja,” and Terri Biscoff, a Professor at USI, will bring her Doberman, “Haley.” All of these dogs have been through a rigorous training program for certification as a therapy dog.
