Newbery Winning Author Cynthia Kadohata Visits

On February 28th we had the honor of having the Newbery award winning author Cynthia Kadohata, Rick Claggett (former dog handler in Vietnam) and his dog Dante come to Nisley for a presentation for our 5th grade students.  We were joined by 5th grade students from Pear Park.

 Cracker! The Best Dog in Vietnam is a wonderful story about the life of a German Shepard dog and how she is placed into military service to be trained to sniff out the enemy, bombs and traps in Vietnam.
