ORANGE -

Students at the Hope Academy in Orange have nominated the school's service dog for the American Humane Society's Emerging Hero Award.

The dog, Delilah, works with students who have a range of disabilities including ADHD and emotional impairments.

Students say Delilah helps calm classmates down during tough times.

"She's our little mascot," says Kelsey Lisk, a behavioral specialist at the school. "I think she kind of represents Hope, and she's our comfort when we need her."

You can vote for Delilah here.
