Dewar 5th graders D.A.R.E.

February 2, 2007

Valdosta - This kind of dare, parents don't mind their kids participating in and actually joined in to watch.

One hundred and 15 fifth graders from Dewar Elementary in Valdosta graduated from the school's 12 week D.A.R.E program offered by the Lowndes County Sheriff's Department.

Deputies taught the students about the effects drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes can have and how to handle the peer pressure.

Many students have no doubt that what they learned will help them in the future.  "If somebody comes to ask me to try something then I just need to think. If it's going to harm me, then I don't need to do it," says D.A.R.E graduate Tiffani Huff.

Many other elementary schools throughout the county also participated in the program.
