5th graders graduate Dover-Eyota DARE

EYOTA, Minn. (FOX 47) -- Fifth graders in the Dover-Eyota School District celebrated a special milestone Friday.

More than 80 students are graduates of this year's DARE program.

DARE stands for Define, Assess, Respond, Evaluate and it's intended to give students the tools they need to resist drug, tobacco and alcohol and make good life decisions overall.

For 10 weeks Olmsted County Deputies step into the classroom to share advice with the students on resisting peer pressure.

On Friday the student's hard work paid off as they participated in the graduation ceremony.

NewsCenter's very own Aubrey Helms was on hand this afternoon to share advice on character building.
