DURHAM, N.C.-  Duke University senior women’s basketball standout Haley Peters will be the keynote speaker at the Tomorrow’s Community Leaders Ceremony that will take place on Monday, Sept. 30 at the Durham School of Arts.  

The ceremony will honor the 2013 Mayor’s Award recipients, 2012-13 Student Action Board members and the 2012-13 Hard Corps Award recipients.  

Peters, who is a native of Red Bank, N.J., is a two-time All-ACC selection for the Blue Devils.  A 2013 CoSIDA Academic All-District III selection, Peters is coming off averaging 12.2 points, a team-best 7.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.1 steals as Duke advanced to the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight for the fourth straight year.  The 6-3 wing helped lead the Blue Devils to their third ACC Championship over the last four years.  

A three-time All-ACC Academic Team selection and five team Dean’s List honoree, Peters has also been very involved in the community since arriving at Duke three years ago.  She has helped at the Ramblin’ Rose Marathon, Read with the Blue Devils, Special Olympics clinics and many other events.  

The Hard Corps Award goes to youth who complete at least 50 service hours during the school year.  The 2012-13 recipients served more than 2,131 volunteer hours.  Each recipient will receive a certificate.

Those receiving the Mayor’s Award are youth who complete at least 100 summer service hours and receive positive evaluations from their volunteer supervisors.  This year’s recipients served more than 32,792 hours during their summer break.  The award winners will receive a certificate signed by Mayor Bell as well as an individual photograph with the Mayor.  There were a total of 279 students who competed the Mayor’s Award for 2013.  

The Student Action Board members are 10th-12th grade students who are former Mayor’s Award recipients and Junior Leadership Durham graduates.  The board meets monthly to plan and implement service projects that address community needs.  Members contributed over 271 service hours in Durham as well as planned and implemented nine service projects during the past school year.
