Albany-- Fifth graders at a South Georgia elementary school pledge to live their lives drug and violence free.

Eighty-three students at Alice Coachman Elementary School picked up their DARE graduation certificates. They have taken part in a ten week program teaching them about the dangers of drugs.

"In DARE, I learned to be drug free, and to say no to drugs," said DARE Graduate Mikia Favors.

"We want to train them and teach them in a positive way, because they can be bold enough to say no to drugs," says DARE Teacher Clifton Alexander.

DARE stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. All fifth graders in the Dougherty County School system go through the DARE program.
