Ninety-two Estherville Lincoln Central fifth grade students celebrated their graduation from the D.A.R.E. program Tuesday evening at Roosevelt Auditorium.

Instructor Nate Dunlavy, who also serves as the school resource officer, said he has now taught the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program for the past 11 years.

The program helps teach youth about the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and other illegal substances.

“We also teach decision-making and where to get help,” Dunlavy said.

Similar to a high school or college graduation, each fifth grader walked across the Roosevelt stage and received a certificate indicating their completion of the D.A.R.E. program.

The students also wrote essays during the course of the program and the top essays from each of the five fifth-grade classes were recognized with an overall winner.

The class winners were: Macy Colegrove (5-1), Morgan Clabaugh (5-2), Evan Jagodzinske (5-3), Breyden Rodriguez (5-4) and Chloe Wood (5-5). The overall winner was Damaris Chilel-Ramirez.
