One student in each of Edgar Murray Elementary School’s seven fifth-grade classes was picked as the best essay writer and was recognized during last Wednesday’s D.A.R.E. graduation ceremony in the gymnasium. Pictured are, from left, St. Clair D.A.R.E. and School Resource Officer Bruce Wilken, Sophie Viehmann, Allison Bright, Alyssa McCormack, Summer Hake, Chastity Ries, Alyssa Sullivan and Grace Simcox. Each of the girls read their essay before the rest of the D.A.R.E. graduates and adults who attended the ceremony.
