St. Mary Catholic School recently had two special visitors – Father Jim Sichko, an alumni of St. Mary Catholic School and his dog, Gracie Marie Charlsey. Father Sichko is currently in Kentucky at St. Mark Catholic School where Gracie attends daily. She is the school mascot. Gracie is a Red Blood Hound and is training for search and rescue. Last week, Gracie rescued two lost girls in the woods that had been missing for three days and it only took Gracie six hours to find them. Father Jim shared with students facts about her breed and answered questions from students. Students were amazed at the fact that she can follow a scent for 483 miles. Students enjoyed petting and loving on her.
