On November 17, 2016, all 5th grade students at Skiatook Intermediate Elementary successfully completed and graduated the D.A.R.E. program. The top two essay winners were Trustin Williams and Lillie Sherrill with Officer Johnny Adams.
Last year when Geri Williams heard Oklahoma D.A.R.E. was having financial difficulties she did not hesitate to come to the rescue. Lisa Brodrick, wife of D.A.R.E. Officer, Mentor, and Oklahoma State D.A.R.E. Coordinator, Ken Brodrick, had put the word out on Facebook that D.A.R.E. in Oklahoma was having financial challenges due to a loss of support by the state. As soon as Geri heard, she contacted Lisa and wrote a check.
