Harrison County D.A.R.E program receives grant

The Harrison County D.A.R.E program was awarded a $2,500 grant by county commissioners.

The Harrison County D.A.R.E program received a helping hand from county commissioners at their weekly meeting.

The program was awarded a $2,500 grant.

Deputy Anthony Sedgmer will use the funds to continue to try to educate Harrison County youth about the dangers of opioids and other issues they face on a daily basis.

"I'm working as hard as I can to make an impact on these kids, make them feel comfortable with me,” Sedgmer said. “So they know that they can come to me if there's problems at home and tell me what's going on, and that I will do something about it, or I will get help for them or for their parents."

The D.A.R.E program will have a booth featuring characters from the movie Cars at the county fair from June 25-30.
