GRANT PARISH, LA (GPSO) – For Verda Elementary fifth grade teacher Denise Jordan, this year’s D.A.R.E. program was a triumph of determination and teamwork for her kids.

On April 27, the students graduated from the D.A.R.E. program in a ceremony that took place at Verda Elementary and was attended by the proud family, friends and fellow students of these children.

Corporal Donna Bryant, who served as the instructor for the students in the program, provided words of praise for the kids about their efforts.

Student Harlee Davidson was the D.A.R.E. essay winner for the class and read her essay to the attendees. The fifth graders performed two skits illustrating the dangers of drug use and sang a brand new anti-drug D.A.R.E. song. Sheriff McCain, Mrs. Jordan and Corporal Bryant then presented the students with their graduation certificates.

Mrs. Jordan was happy with how her kids pulled together for the skits and song despite dealing with sicknesses and the stresses of testing and other events.

“They did a tremendous job, and I’m very, very proud of them,” said Jordan. “I don’t know how my next group of students and I are going to top this next year, but we’re going to try.”
