Two adults and four juveniles, along with their families, friends and mentors, gathered last Wednesday to celebrate their graduation from the DeKalb County Drug Court program. The observance was held at the county complex. Adult graduates Tim Bogle and Crystal Baker and the four juveniles received a framed diploma certificate noting their completion of the drug court program through which participants commit to becoming clean and sober.
