My service dog, Wilson, is Santa Fe College’s first canine graduate.
When I went to pickup my cap and tassel from the college’s bookstore, one of the managers gave me a tassel for Wilson. I decided that if he had a tassel, he should have a cap too. So off we went to the graduation ceremony and unknown to me was the fact that Santa Fe College had never had a dog walk for graduation before. Wilson ended up quite the celebrity that day: photos with the president, other graduating students requesting they have their picture with him and the local paper photographers clicking away. He even made the front page of their website that Friday and the front page of the paper the following Sunday.
