ROCK HILL, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – Students of Legion Collegiate Academy doing what they can to support Veterans.

The school is partnering with the organization “Pawsitive Action” Service Dogs to raise $5,000, which the non-profit will use to train and care for one service dog as it is being raised to help a Veteran.
