D.A.R.E. Graduation by Camerron Martin
On May 2, 2019 fifth-graders from elementary schools of all shapes and sizes came down to Pueblo County High School to celebrate their Drug Abuse Resistance Education, D.A.R.E., program graduation. Buses arrived, and kids flocked onto the football field at Hornet Stadium to participate in games and activities such as: freeze tag, tug-o-war, peddle cart racing, jump rope, football throws, and potato sack races. Smiles were on the faces of all as they went from game to game with their classmates and teachers. The event was run by a group of officers including Deputy Alfredo Gonzalez, who in fact has been working at county alongside his trusty dog. When asked about the planning and preparation involved he responded “We have been doing this for five years now. We start planning in the very beginning of the school year and seek out donations and fundraisers to fund it. The kids love it and have a great time coming out her as a reward for meeting the course curriculum and it really is a lot of fun.”
