6th Grade Students Complete DARE Program
 A DARE graduation ceremony was held recently for 147 6th grade students at Tri-West Middle School. The students spent 13 weeks with DARE instructor Deputy Charles Jones, North West Hendricks School's Resource Officer, learning about the dangers and adverse health effects of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs as well as how to resist peer pressure. All students were required to complete a student handbook, participate in classroom discussions, and write a reflective essay on what they learned during the program. Deputy Jones presented the students with certificates and recognized one graduate from each class period for their essay. During the ceremony, Deputy Jones thanked Mr. Nickoli and Mr. Sullivan for allowing the DARE Program to be conducted at Tri-West Middle School.
Pictured left to right are NWHSC Resource Officer Charles Jones, Mr. Sullivan, essay winners Maddi F., Cassidy O., Luke B., Morgan B., and Kelsey R, along with Hendricks County Sheriff Dave Galloway.
