Drug-Free Is The Way To Be—On the morning of May 21, fifth graders at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison were awarded certificates and t-shirts from Edison Police Officer Michael Gurovich and their teachers Nicole Nolan and Debbie Kendall, marking their graduation from the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Program). As part of their training, students were required to write essays detailing why it is important to avoid the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. Gurovich selected four essays that truly expressed the D.A.R.E. mission and read them aloud during the ceremony as the essay winners looked on proudly.
