My neighbor has big ambitions. Ivy league college. Successful business career. Designing and building a National Wildlife Habitat. And she is only 15. Karissa Wenk is a Baldwin High School student and one of Izzy’s (my four-year old Portuguese Water Dog) favorite people. Well, the truth is that Karissa’s Golden Retriever, Holly, is Izzy’s closest friend.
Karissa decided to build a sustainable wildlife habitat at her high school that would care for animals and educate students about the environment. Karissa asked if Community Veterinary Partners would sponsor her. She had the courage to develop this vision and make it happen. We were happy to support her efforts and applaud her young, but mature leadership skills.
Here’s a link to read more about her exciting project: http://bit.ly/aoTT2u.
Great work, Karrisa.
