Fifth-grade students from Brownstown, Crothersville, Lutheran Central and Medora elementary schools recently completed the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program and were recognized during graduation ceremonies.
The programs were conducted by D.A.R.E. officers with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department and Brownstown Police Department.
Each of the 209 students received a certificate issued by their D.A.R.E. officers, who spend 45 minutes once a week for 10 weeks teaching the students from an internationally used curriculum about why they should not use tobacco, alcohol or drugs. The officers used computer slide presentations, videos and workbooks to deliver their message.
