Holy Trinity Catholic School eighth-grader Ben Schitter draws the attention of a cat during a class trip to the Dubois County Humane Society in Jasper on Monday. Students in preschool through eighth grade donated a total of 917 items to the Human Society, which were delivered during the class trip. “I hope the kids today learn to have a passion for their animals, be responsible, pick up after your pet, volunteer and just be a good citizen,” said Humane Society volunteer LaVonne Tisdal of Huntingburg.
