Galena Students Graduate DARE Program
February 27, 2020
Galena-Abesville Elementary held a DARE graduation event on Thursday, February 20, in honor of the fifth grade students who successfully completed the program. Parents and students heard from their DARE officer, Cpl. Melissa Riggins and Sheriff Doug Rader. The winners of the essay contest then read their papers before the rest of the graduates were recognized with certificates of completion and then the graduates enjoyed cupcakes. Pictured above at left is the winner from one of the two fifth grade classrooms, Ayla Braun. At right is Kylie Easley, who was selected for writing the best essay from the other class.
