Movement of Youth participant and Durham Tech Middle College High School senior Inestin Petit-Homme was presented the Hard Corps Service Award and the Mayor Service Award on Tuesday, September 30. The Hard Corps Service award is given to students who complete at least 50 volunteer hours during the school year, while the Mayor Service Award is given to students who complete at least 100 volunteer hours during their summer break. Petit-Homme was presented these awards by Durham’s very own Mayor Bill Bell. The ceremony took place on Tuesday, September 30 at Durham School of the Arts.
In addition to the two awards that he received that night, Inestin will also receive the prestigious Gold Presidential Service Award, which is given to students who complete 250 volunteer hours in a 12-month span. Petite-Homme says he was able to complete all of his hours through participation with nonprofit organizations including Movement of Youth, Durham County Teen Court, and C.A.A.R.E Incorporated. Inestin has a dedication to public service that deserves the highest levels of recognition.
