The Good Citizen Award recognizes D.A.R.E. graduates who have resisted drugs and alcohol and want to make a difference in their community. This yearly award is given to a DARE graduate who exemplifies the qualities and characteristics of being a good citizen by making safe and responsible choices and by helping others. A good citizen is someone who shows good character by performing random acts of kindness, maintains a friendly rapport with peers and is a positive role model for other students. This year Jackson Danis was chosen for this prestigious award, as he demonstrated an act of kindness by helping out an adult organize her office after being on medical leave. He showed excellent work ethic and care. On March 15, 2017 Jackson assisted by helping put away all books and binders on the book shelf, emptying all boxes and helping lift heavy boxes.
Vice President of DARE BC Society Steve Ternes presented Jackson a certificate for being a Good Citizen.
The honorable Mr. John Yap attended the event and presented Jackson with an award from his office. Jackson was nominated for being hardworking, respectful, personable and empathetic which are all amazing characteristics of a good citizen.
