Eighty-two fifth grade students from Logan County have successfully graduated from the Logan County D.A.R.E. program.

Logan County Sheriff Sergeant Mark Landers taught D.A.R.E. to students from Olympia South Elementary, Emden Elementary, and New Holland Middletown Elementary.

The D.A.R.E. program consisted of 10 weekly lessons. During the course of the program, the students learned how to utilize the DARE Decision Making Model to help them make safe and responsible choices.

Topics which were covered included positive ways to deal with stress, peer pressure, the health effects of drugs and tobacco, bullying, good citizenship, and building a help network. The students completed a D.A.R.E. essay at the end of the program. The following students from each class received an award for the best essay:
