HSVC's Investigations Department paid a visit to a couple of Nordhoff High Schools summer classes this week. Humane Investigations Director Kendra King, along with Senior Humane Officer Jenna Utter and Officers in training Ray Gonzalez and Astrid Derringer, talked to Mr. Pete Deneen's College and Career Foundations class about the services Humane Officers offer in Ventura County and how they started their career paths.
The visit, coordinated by HSVC Foster Coordinator Cheney C., was a huge hit with the students. Cheney also spoke to the students about junior volunteer and foster program opportunities at the shelter. While at the high school, Mrs. Sarah Lipton asked the officers to stop by her classroom too. The class was able to see the officer's van outside and learn about the different tools officers use when interacting with animals. They were even sworn in as junior Humane Officers by Director King at the end of the visit, where they pledged to always honor and protect animals. Each student received a junior Humane Officer badge sticker to wear as a keepsake and symbolize their commitment to animals in need.
