Akron-Westfield fifth-grade students will receive their certificates for completing the DARE, Drug Abuse Resistance Education, on March 15.

The evening will include a fun night, followed by the graduation ceremony. Plymouth County Sheriff officer Lynn Steckelberg said the program is a worthwhile one, and has the support of the towns' police departments, and Police Chief Kimm Nielsen in Akron. More than 50 students are in DARE at A-W this year.

"It shows students what can happen if they go down the wrong path," Steckelberg said
