Remembering Miss Siggy the Support DogMiss Siggy

Nov. 17, 2017 Earlier this month, Miss Lily Sigmund, also known as
Miss Siggy the LES Support Dog, passed away.

 

Under the guidance and care of LES Social Worker Catherine Ricchetti, Miss Siggy pioneered a district-wide social service dog program in Guilderland. She began her service in the 2004-05 school year, working with thousands
of students until her retirement in 2016. Miss Siggy had received extensive training to be an effective part of the GCSD staff. She held a Canine Good Citizenship degree from the American Kennel Association and was certified by Therapy Dog International. Miss Siggy will be sorely missed, but her legacy lives on as the district has been able to expand its social service dog program to include five trained dogs.
