D.A.R.E. America Youth Advocacy Board Alumnus from Arkansas

D.A.R.E. 2020 Louis “Skip” Miller National Scholarship Recipient

I am Rylee Grubb from Corning, Arkansas. I am the son of Jason and Mary Ann Grubb and I have one little brother, Bentley.

I am a 2020 honor graduate and a three sport varsity starting athlete. I have also represented my class as its president since we began our seventh grade year. I have also been an active Junior Fire Chief in my community for three years. I was also awarded the Lions Club Volunteer pin for logging over 100 community service hours. Along with creating the Arkansas D.A.R.E social media pages, one project that I have completed was expanding the K-12 Opioid and OTC/Rx Drug Abuse Prevention Enhancement lessons into my high school.

During my time as the Arkansas YAB, I created a video and slideshow which described how to implement D.A.R.E into school districts. In an effort to share information and learn from others, I reached out to over thirty superintendents in Arkansas public schools. In a further effort to reach out to younger children, I have spent most of my weekends each fall since I accepted the position as a YAB attending D.A.R.E back-to-school bashes, child fingerprinting and Child ID Processing events, and later each year I have spent time each spring speaking in D.A.R.E graduations all over Arkansas.

I was accepted into a private college, Williams Baptist University, and plan to major in Business Administration and Marketing. It has been my goal to obtain my Arkansas Real Estate License before I begin my college journey, and I obtained that goal recently. I will continue to work in the real estate market on a family team and obtain my broker’s license after graduating college and hope to eventually further my real estate career as a commercial and residential property appraiser.
