UNL athletes DARE kids
4Role models' tell elementary students to stay away from drugs
By Adeana Leftin
Staff Reporter___
UNL athletes are DAREing to be
More than 100 University of Ne
braska-Lincoln athletes are volunteer
ing their free time at the DARE booth
at the Nebraska State Fair until it ends
DARE, Drug Abuse Resistance
Education, is beginning its second
season in Nebraska after a successful
year in Omaha schools, said Deputy
Emanuel Bartek of the Lincoln sher
iff’s office. The anti-drug program
focuses on fifth- and sixth-grade stu
dents in an attempt to reach students
when they’re young, he said.
The athletes spend two hours at
the booth speaking with students and
answering their questions with the
help of police officers.
Law enforcement agents avoid
using “scare tactics,’’ Bartek said.
Instead, DARE stresses the impor
tance of high self-esteem in evading
peer pressure. The program also teaches
the consequences of drug use, he said.
Nancy Kindig, a graduate assis
tant who works with the UNL women’s
athletic program, said trie sneriu s
office contacted the athletic depart
ment to form a formal relationship
with the athletes to support the pro
“It’s a way to give back to the
community,” Kindig said.
Kindig said she hopes the athletes
working on the project also will speak
in public schools.
Bartek said the sheriff’s office
wanted to use athletes to support DARE
because they are role models for the
“I’m not credible,” he said, “but
they are . . . now. They perform a
fantastic service.”
Kelly Westenrieder and Susan
Hedrick, both members of the UNL
track team, spent some of their time
at the booth answering questions about
track and signing autographs.
The athletes hope to show students
that participating in sports is a way to
avoid turning to drugs to relieve bore
dom. Hedrick said.
Westenrieder said the athletes’ goal
is to answer students ’ questions about
their sport and demonstrate the quali
ties of a drug-free athlete.
“You don’t need drugs to be an
athlete,” Westenrieder said.
ncuuiA saiu uic; aie iiav
ing a positive effect.
“They (students) see someone older
and in sports, not drugs,” Hedrick
Unlike parents and police, athletes
can identify with students and show
them they can’t succeed with drugs or
steroids, only with education and hard
work, Hedrick said.
Jeff Hooper, a track team member,
said he participated because he felt it
was his first opportunity to do some
thing for kids.
“If what we’re doing will keep
one kid off drugs, it will suit its pur
pose,” Hooper said.
Sara Offringa, a member of the
UNL women’s basketball team, said
the success of the athletes centered on
the fact that they’re not authority figures
- they’re not around every day tell
ing the kids what to do. Instead of
rebelling against the advice of an
athlete, young people want to prove
that they can do it, she said.
Bartck said that most students want
to know when the DARE program
would come to their school. They’ve
already heard about it and now they
want to participate, he said.
