Jonathan Ferry

Littleton , Colorado

Jonathan Ferry, 18, of Littleton, Colo., a senior at Rock Canyon High School, dedicated more than 1,400 hours to raising and training a puppy for Guide Dogs for the Blind, then presented her to a man who had lost his sight after intensive radiation treatment. Jonathan found that his 16-month training regimen with Bellina the black lab, which included regular meetings and monthly outings, helped him to manage his Asperger’s syndrome.
