Seymour fifth-graders shared a taste of pomp and circumstance as they crossed the stage in the Seymour High School auditorium for the 2012-13 DARE graduation.
Broken into two days because of the number of students participating, the program honored 408 children , who received certificates and congratulations for their accomplishments from high school DARE mentors, teachers, Seymour police officers and Mayor Craig Luedeman on Tuesday and Thursday nights.
DARE officer Tim Toborg said he’s proud of the students in the program as well as the high school mentors who volunteered this year. He said there were 75 students from Seymour and Trinity Lutheran high schools who participated in the program as mentors to younger students this year.
“That’s 75 kids who in all four years of high school haven’t tried (drugs or alcohol),” Toborg said.
