DARE Graduates Take Center Stage

Graduation ceremonies usually happen in the spring, but a group of East Texas students celebrated one Friday.

Fifth-grade students from the Lufkin, Hudson, Diboll, Central and Huntington school districts completed the DARE program.  This year's graduates got to see a live performance from the Lufkin Crimestoppers Band.

Despite Angelina County's decision to stop funding DARE, it continues to be successful in the fight against drugs and alcohol.  Friday's event was the 21st countywide DARE graduation in Angelina County.
