Kailey Kleinjan, a 2020 graduate of Carroll’s anthrozoology program, has wasted no time since graduation in applying her education and knowledge to create a new business. Hi-Line Canine, a dog training business run by the 22-year-old Chinook native saw its soft opening at the end of May. In the article in the Havre Daily News, Kleinjan said her new business has seen a successful launch despite the pandemic, which she said, hasn't had a huge impact on things so far. At Carroll, Kleinjan was one of last year’s Annual Giving Student Ambassadors and had been a phonothon caller all four of her years at Carroll.
