This week’s Hometown Hero, presented by Hendrick Southpoint, is Charles Harrington! Harrington is a community fixture in Carrboro, current interim director of recreation, parks and cultural resources. But what Harrington does around town goes far further than a simple title. He’s always on the move, always helping things go off without a hitch, managing people, places, plans and proceeding to ensure Carrboro shines as brightly as possible!
