Christina Tran

Wickliffe, Ohio

Christina Tran, 18, of Wickliffe, Ohio, a senior at Wickliffe High School, raised a puppy named Apollo as part of the guide dog training program at Pilot Dogs, which provides service dogs to people who need them; along with taking general care of Apollo, she took him to obedience classes, socialized him in new environments and spread awareness of the importance of guide dogs. Christina was inspired to participate in this program by her sister, who also helps raise future guide dogs.
