The students educated elementary students about the dangers of substance abuse and making healthy choices as they grow up.

"My favorite part of this program was probably working with the kids, and learning from them. It wasn't all about us teaching them it was about them teaching us to become better leaders,"
said Danielle Barto, the Jill Cavanaugh Memorial Scholarship winner.

Barto was one of three scholarship winners at tonight's reception.
