Drug Abuse Resistance Education

Sedalia 6th graders earn DARE dipolomas

Graves County Schools’ resource officer John Cavin underwent intensive training this school year to become a certified DARE instructor. Drug Abuse Resistance Education previously was taught in the district’s schools, but has been absent for more than a decade. “DARE is a police officer-taught lesson plan,” Cavin explained. “It’s designed for students to be able to say no to drugs, tobacco, alcohol, and to their friends when they try to get kids to do something they shouldn’t.” Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon purchased tee-shirts through his office for the students’ celebration. Kentucky State Police troopers also participated in the students’ graduation. Pictured here are sixth graders from Sedalia Elementary School with Cavin, upper left, and Redmon.
