JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – "I want to see every kid stay away from drugs and alcohol." That's the message Craighead County Deputy Jamey Carter wanted to get across Saturday night at the annual Out of the Dark concert.

The evening was filled with enthusiastic applause as Out of the Dark members gave testimonials and artists performed songs in the Wesley Hall at the First United Methodist Church in Jonesboro.

Out of the Dark is an organization that works hard to prevent children drug abuse in schools. Johnny Terrell, chairman of the Craighead County chapter, said if you were not able to make it to the event there are many things you could do as a member of your community.

"We encourage everyone to just talk about it," said Terrell. "Be aware of it, so people will be able to catch it before it gets out of control with their children."

Terrell strongly believes that raising awareness about abuse in schools can make a change in our community.

"We want to show how important it is to educate our youth in the dangers that come with use and abuse. We have found through the education kids do not take drugs and that's what we are really are here out for."

The event ran from 6p.m. to 9 p.m. Among the performers was the Arkansas State University choir.
