Tuesday, November 27, Brockbank fifth-grade students having completed their Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) training taught by Officer Clint Peterson of the Spanish Fork Police Department graduated. Officer Peterson taught the students several lessons on drugs and ways to avoid drug use. He stressed the influences that drugs can have and the potential dangers. As part of the D.A.R.E. requirements, students were encouraged to write an essay on what they have learned. Outstanding essay winners had the opportunity to read their essay at graduation. Also lucky students had their name drawn and got to take home their very own "Daren the Lion", D.A.R.E.'s mascot.
