WILLIAMSPORT — Hughesville High School student Bailey Derrick, 15, and her twin sister, Bryn, wanted a dog of their own. What they have received since volunteering more than a year ago at the Lycoming County SPCA is so much more.

In fact, Bailey has become instrumental in teaching a deaf dog how to communicate with people, a valuable skill the animal will need in order to find its forever home.
