The fifth-grade D.A.R.E. graduation at Walter B. Howard Elementary School was held on June 18. The event included Columbia County Sheriff’s Office Captain DeRocha, First Sergeant Bray, Deputy Guntert, School Resource Deputy McMann, Superintendent Leslie Whitcomb, and Elementary Principal Andrew Kourt. Many thanks to Sheriff David Bartlett and the entire Sheriff’s Office for all their work with the District on not only the DARE program but ensuring our schools’ safety all year round. Congratulations to all our students who completed the DARE Program this year!
