D.A.R.E. officer Adam Stanley led the Supply Elementary assembly in the Pledge of Allegiance before 66 fifth-grade students walked across the stage to receive their D.A.R.E. diplomas on Monday, Dec. 8.

Supply Elementary Principal Dwight Willis welcomed the students, staff and guests to the 2008 D.A.R.E. Ceremony. Special guests were Brunswick County school board member Catherine Cooke, Detective Todd Coring, Brunswick County Sheriff John W. Ingram and motivational speaker Joe Yalch.

The four essay winners, Jordan Hernandez, Tremaine Johnson, Mitchell Barfield and Angel Williams, read their winning essays.

Yalch challenged the fifth-grade students to be strong and to use the tools they received through D.A.R.E. and how to make good choices concerning drugs, alcohol and tobacco products. He stressed that choices should be made that make them feel good about themselves.

Ingram delivered the closing remarks.
