Symsonia Elem students write about DARE

Symsonia Elementary School sixth graders, from left, Jacey Walker, Quinton Key, Kealey Henson, and Carson Sims smile as they wear the medals they were awarded for writing the most effective DARE essays in their class. Graves County School Resource Officer John Cavin told the class that all of their essays are worthy of awards, but these four lead the pack. DARE is an acronym for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. The students brought their own, unique views to the topic and the lessons they learned over the course of nine weeks of study. All eight Graves County elementary school sixth grades complete the course within a 12-month period. This was Symsonia’s second round since the Graves County Schools restored DARE.
