RICHMOND – In about seven years, high school seniors will receive letters from fifth-graders.

Richmond School Resource Officer Chassity Nevels has custody of letters Sunrise Elementary School fifth-graders wrote to their senior selves while in the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program.

“When you get to graduation, I will give them back to you,” she told them Thursday at their D.A.R.E. graduation ceremony.
