k9 Connection: After a two-year hiatus, k9 Connection returned to Olympic High School last week for their dog training program. Six students (Aleydis Sernas, Esteban Gonzalez, Rodrigo Delcastillo, Tarik Leno, Max Miguel, Blake Rugh) completed the course and received certificates from the organization. k9 Connection uses dog to help teach life skills and has spent much of the pandemic working with homeless individuals and their pets.
