HEROES OF THE COMMUNITY- Merweither County Sheriff Steve Whitlock (Seated) teamed up with a number of high school students to spread the word about the advan- tages of staying drug-free. Taking part from Greenville High were (L-R) Patrick Collier, Tiffany Boyd, Tamara Elliott and Jason Rivers. Sheriff, Area High Schoolers Join Forces in Drug Battle Area high school students this week assisted the Meriwether County Sheriff's Office in spreading the word about staying drug free. The tudents were selected from their respective schools to go into the 5th grade classes to talk with younger students about remaining drug free as they get older. In order to be selected the students must be academically sound, well thought of by their peers, as well as being committed to a drug free lifestyle. According to Sheriff Whitlock, "It's easy for us to tell our children to say no to drugs, when as adults we don't face a lot of the things that they face. These high school stu- dents deal with negative peer pressure and temptation almost daily. This shows our younger children that they too can suc- cess.fully deal with the pressure to use drugs and make something of themselves." The high school role models went to each of the fifth grade classes at Mountain View, Unity, and George Washington Elementary Schools as well as Flint River Academy elementary students. At each of the schools they discussed their dreams, and how they themselves deal with the pres- sure to use drugs. Selected as high school role models for the 2002-2003 school year were: Patrick Collier, Tiffany Boyd, Jason Rivers and Tamara Elliott from Greenville High School. Manchester High School role models were Katy Moore, Greg Rodgers, Brittani Boykin, Harold Davis, Morgan Conner and David Dunn. Selected role model students from Flint River Academy were Lindsey Perdue, Bryan Garrett, and Mandy Adams. "I'm proud to see these students step up. We should all be proud of these kids. Hopefully with the DARE Program in our elementary schools and in the future with our school resource officers working in the middle and high schools we can play a small part in helping our kids make a brighter future for themselves," Whitlock said.
