Service Dog Supports Local Student

Posted:

(LEWISBURG) WVVA- Last May, The Beta Zeta Delta Chapter of Phi Kappa Theta Honor Society at New River Community and Technical College in Lewisburg held a raffle to assist a fellow student in her need for a service dog.

Bethany McFerrin, a student at New River is wheel chair bound from Cerebral Palsy.

The raffle allowed the students to raise six thousand five hundred dollars giving Bethany her dog, Koby.

Today Bethany and Koby arrived at school after being in Ohio for Koby's training.

Bethany's mother says that her daughter's dream has always been to go to Marshall University and study journalism.

Now, with Koby by her side she has the independence to do so.
