Graves County Central Elementary School graduates 77 sixth-graders from Drug Abuse Resistance Education class

Graves County Central Elementary School recently graduated some 77 sixth-graders from its DARE class. They posed in this photo with their DARE instructor, Graves County School Resource Officer Shawn Maxie. “DARE stands for Drug Awareness Resistance Education,” said Superintendent Kim Dublin. “It gives our students skills to deal with saying no, not only to drugs, but also to decisions that wouldn’t be good for them in their lives. We have to help our kids with those skills. Many times they’re put in tough situations. Giving them tools to think quickly on their feet is very valuable and this program gives them more confidence in making good choices.”
