Ray Trujillo and Crime Prevention Specialist Susan Gentry, all of the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, recently hosted a Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) graduation ceremony for the 13 fifth-grade students attending the Everglades City School.

The CCSO incorporates the DARE program to better inform Collier’s youth the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. During the ceremony Hailey Mitchell was recognized as an outstanding student of the program and Victoria Wells read an essay she wrote about substance abuse.
