Remembering Northern's First Service Dog

This summer, Northern York County School District said goodbye to Hershey, Northern's first service dog. During his ten years of service, Hershey touched countless lives by providing comfort and support to students and staff throughout the District in a variety of ways. Whether he was running with the cross country team or sitting quietly to soothe someone in crisis, Hershey had a way of knowing who needed him most. Hershey helped pave the way for the comprehensive service dog program now in place at Northern, which includes seven service dogs with at least one dog in each school building. Hershey will be greatly missed but his legacy will always live on at Northern!
