Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli read a Members’ Statement today congratulating local dog trainer Sara Carson for her top five finish on the recent season of the hit TV series “America’s Got Talent.”
"Thank you very much, Speaker. Well, the show is called “America’s Got Talent” – but over the past few weeks, millions of viewers learned that North Bay has talent too – in the name of Sara Carson, and her dog, Hero. As many are now familiar, Sara is a highly skilled dog trainer and for weeks this summer, she and Hero wowed television audiences with their act.
"Judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Canada’s own Howie Mandel praised her week after week; and, week after week, she advanced further into the competition until she reached the show’s finale. While Sara didn’t take home the top prize or the one million dollar payout that goes with it, she managed to advance to the top 5, which is an amazing feat in itself.
"But even before this, Sara was considered one of the top trick dog instructors in the world and has taught numerous classes via social media for the past several years. Sara is a true local inspiration and success story, and you can learn more about what she does on her website, www.thesupercollies.com.
"Congratulations, Sara, and thank you for thrilling not just Nipissing, but “America’s Got Talent” viewers everywhere. We can’t wait to see what you’re doing next."
