Dr. Walter Soboleff once said, “We should have a Gold Medal every month ...”
If that were true, we would definitely want to have Hydaburg and its basketball-playing mayor Tony Peele in the tournament. He is fun to watch and a pillar of the community.
Those are two of the traits that earned Peele the 2014 Walter Soboleff Award.
“This is a big award,” Peele, 38, said. “I am really humbled by the honor they bestowed upon me. I am fortunate to be put into that class of people and hopefully will go home and continue to do the good work that comes with the award.”
