Mark your calendars! 
 
Congratulations to our Students participating in our Civic Engagement programs
 
The Annual Tomorrow's Community Leaders recognition event will be November 8th at the NC School of Science & Math.  

For over 40 years, The Center has worked to mobilize Triangle area students to volunteer and make a difference. Last year our students were recognized for over 50,000 hours of service to the Triangle community.

Annually, we host the Tomorrow's Community Leaders Award Ceremony for all student achievement programs each fall.
 
 
VOLUNTEER OF THE WEEK
 Sue Weiss
Alliance for Historic Hillsborough
  
 
 

Sue Weiss has made a big difference to the Alliance for Historic Hillsborough, a non-profit group that promotes and publicizes Hilllsborough and manages its Visitors Center. Last year, Sue used her more than 40 years of experience in radio to forge a new relationship between the Alliance and Hillsborough's community-based radio station, WHUP. This collaboration eventually led to Orange Slices, a weekly radio show focused on history. Sue was also responsible for a successful two-day pop up museum in Hillsborough on the history of Negro Leagues baseball, and for a temporary exhibit in conjunction with the Historic Occonneechee Speedway Group. Sue achieved all of this while continuing to volunteer at her regular Friday afternoon shift operating the visitors center. Michael Verville, her Volunteer Supervisor, calls Sue “hardworking and focused, retired but active, and passionate about making the world a better place”.

 
Thank you, Sue, for the hard work you’ve done and for your dedication to our community!
