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

Hello. My name is Rylee Grubb, and I am from Corning, a small farming town nestled in the northeast corner of Arkansas. My parents are Jason and Mary Ann and I have one little brother named Bentley. I came to be a part of D.A.R.E. when my School Resource Officer asked me to apply for the YAB position. Agreeing to get involved in D.A.R.E. has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. It has provided me lifelong skillsets and the opportunity to meet many people, including other Arkansas D.A.R.E. officers and members as well as ambassadors from other countries.

During my high school years, I have worked diligently to maintain a high GPA and to be a CHS honor graduate. I play three varsity sports (fullback/wide receiver in football, point guard/wing on the basketball team, and third base/centerfielder for the baseball team). I have also represented my class as its president since we began our seventh grade year.

I also do a number of volunteer activities. I am a part of the local volunteer fire department and serve there as Junior Chief. I maintain that position while also spending time most weekends traveling to D.A.R.E. events within my state. This includes Saturday events of back-to-school bashes, child fingerprinting and Child ID Processing events, and various other D.A.R.E.-sponsored events.

My plans after high school are to attend college and major in either civil engineering or business administration. Since my father is a journeyman lineman for our local electric cooperative, I have a strong desire to join in the field and work in design of the cooperative’s grid.
