Recognizing a Dedicated Young Woman

Today Senators Ross, Timilty and I had the privilege to present Sarah Killough of Attleboro with an official Senate citation for her commitment and dedication to the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) Program. Sarah has been involved with the D.A.R.E. program for years and currently serves as the Massachusetts representative to the D.A.R.E. Youth Advisory Council.

She has worked tirelessly in promoting the virtues of D.A.R.E. and is an excellent ambassador to the program. Sarah recently marched in the Topsfield Fair and was a summer counselor at the D.A.R.E. camp located at Camp Finberg in Norton, MA. To learn more about the D.A.R.E. Program please click here to visit the official D.A.R.E. website. Sarah has recently created a Massachusetts D.A.R.E. Facebook fan page which can be accessed by clicking here.

Below are two photos of Sarah being presented her citation by me and my senate colleagues in the Senate Chamber. We are joined by Sarah’s mother, father and grandmother and the Vice President of the Massachusetts D.A.R.E. Association, Officer Michelle Nowak of Boxford.
