D.A.R.E. America Youth Advocacy Board Member from Iowa
Hi there! My name is Jamie Kofron and I am the D.A.R.E. Youth Advocacy Board Representative from Iowa! I live in a small town called Tipton in Eastern Iowa. I am currently a junior at Tipton High School. I am active in athletics, band and choir, and various clubs around my high school. Through these activities, I have learned that I have a love for leading others to be a source of good. I hope to continue this passion of mine through D.A.R.E. One interesting fact about me is that my I am a volunteer firefighter. I joined the department in June of 2017 to fight fires alongside my sister and my dad. It is something that I never knew I could love so much!
Throughout my community, I am involved in many things to help people. I love leading others to be positive role models as well. This is one of the reasons that I decided to join the D.A.R.E. Youth Advocacy Board. I also have seen, personally, the effects that tobacco and other similar substances can have on people. Even encouraging one person to resist drugs can bring good to this world!
