from the Fundamentals of Speech class were visited by a special
guest the morning of Nov. 1 in the form of a lady named Sassy.
Sassy is a horse.
Students Alana Lamerand and Sarah Nadeau engineered the
visit--unique in the annals of Liberty Central School District
history--as part of the Entertainment Speech unit.
In the frosty early morning air, Alana and Sarah indoctrinated
their peers in the rules of horse etiquette, then encouraged them
to brush, feed, and take selfies with Sassy. A brave few even
attempted to "pick" Sassy's feet--what non-wranglers might refer
to as "cleaning them thar hooves."
Sassy seemed to enjoy the attention, and students Madi Johnstone
and Evelyn Barragan demonstrated definite equestrian potential.
Fundamentals of Speech is offered through the high school’s
connection with SUNY Sullivan. Qualifying students may transfer
credits earned here to cooperating state schools. Fundamentals of
Speech is taught by Liberty High School vet Bill Fleck.
