Sully is our wonderful facility dog here at BHS. He was provided through a partnership grant with ALSDE and Service Dogs of Alabama. Sully is a full time faculty member that provides service at Boaz High School. He lives with his handlers Josh and Juddie Walker. Josh is the Assistant Principal/AD and Juddie is the media specialist at Boaz High School. Sully has received intensive training for a year and a half to get him ready to work in a school environment. Below are just a few of the goals of facility dogs placed in schools:
- To reduce stress in the classroom, during a counseling sessions, or during testing.
- To create opportunities for inclusion and participation for all students.
- To deflect any opportunities for conflict and diffuse defiant and disruptive behaviors.
Boaz is thankful that we were selected to receive such a wonderful dog who provides love, friendship, comfort, and support for our students and faculty.
