ROCKY RIVER, Ohio – More than 200 fifth graders from Kensington Intermediate School were honored on Thursday morning at the annual DARE Graduation program that was held at the Don Umerley Recreation Center.

DARE is a national drug, alcohol and violence-resistance education program. The police-officer led series of classroom lessons teach children how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug and violence-free lives.

Officers Camp and Schill led the courses at Kensington and attended Thursday’s graduation ceremony along with Rocky River City School District administrators, Board of Education members, city leaders, and hundreds of parents and family members.

After receiving their DARE diplomas, the Class of 2026 and soon to be sixth graders at the middle school headed to the Rocky River pool for an afternoon of fun and games.
