Bibb County students make history in C.H.A.M.P. S. Graduation

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – More than two thousand Bibb County fifth graders made history Thursday.

Bibb County Sheriff’s Office deputies served as instructors for the C.H.A.M.P.S. program.

C.H.A.M.P.S. stands for choosing healthy activities and methods promoting safety.

The students learn internet and child abduction safety as well as how to avoid peer pressure. They also learn how to properly handle other challenges.

Bibb County Sheriff David Davis says he is proud of his CHAMP instructors working diligently with the various schools in the county.

“These students have worked hard the whole year learning about peer pressure, learning about gangs, learning about drug resistance and all the things that will help them to become a better community member," says Davis.

The Bibb County Sheriff commissioned all of the C.H.A.M.P.S. graduates as junior Bibb County deputies.
The program was founded in 2003 by the Georgia Sheriff’s Association.
