The Office of Durham and Regional Affairs kicked off the new year with a new partnership between Duke, Durham Public Schools, and The Herald-Sun: Duke University’s Durham Student of the Week program.
With support from Duke, The Herald-Sun will feature every week a DPS middle or high school student nominated in recognition of his or her inspiring qualities or ability to overcome obstacles. Every DPS secondary school will have a chance to nominate at least two students by the end of the year.
“A lot of great things are happening at the schools, exciting learning opportunities and dynamic learning environments,” said Vice President for Durham and Regional Affairs Phail Wynn Jr. “We wanted the opportunity to highlight on a regular basis each of the schools, along with the students who are doing great things at the schools.”
Look in The Herald-Sun’s Schools section every Tuesday to see the rest of the year’s honorees.
