THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A furry, adorable, and loving face is doing a lot more that bringing smiles to student's faces at Southern Regional Technical College. It's improving test scores!
"I saw a 10 point increase in test scores from the previous classes," said Terry Harper, RN Instructor
" I've actually talked to a few students that I know that go here and they actually liked the idea, maybe doing it during finals week where it can be a school wide event," said Amber Atkinson, student
"It socializes the dog and gets them the interaction they might not get at the humane society. It seemed to go really well, they enjoyed it and it maybe got some dogs a home," said Atkinson.
It's a program that benefits both students and the dogs.
As of now the program has only been introduced with the nursing students.
Students and staff hope to open it up to all students before big tests in the future.
