Grimm Chosen as State DARE Educator of the Year

Cue the confetti! Haughton Elementary teacher Rosemary Grimm has been chosen as the DARE Educator of the Year for the state of Louisiana. 

Student Kaden Marks, who was in Grimm’s fifth grade class last school year, wrote a moving letter, explaining why his teacher was tops in his book. Not only was his essay chosen, but Marks also received $50 from the Louisiana DARE Officers’ Association. 

Grimm, along with Haughton Elementary SRO Cedric Payne, will be recognized July 21 in Opelousas at a Louisiana DARE Officers' Association DARE banquet.
