Chris Blue is Thursday’s Hometown.  He is the Chapel Hill Police Chief.

He’s been the Police Chief for nearly 6 years.  There are many reasons to honor Chief Blue, but we want to put the spotlight on his work with Volunteers for Youth.  He’s been working with the organization for years.  Volunteers for Youth has been helping since 1981.  Through the mentoring program, community service program, and teen court program, they work to provide young people with the tools to become responsible adults.

A big fundraiser for Volunteers for Youth is the annual Larry Fedora Golf Tournament.  This year’s tournament is Monday, May 16th.  Chief Blue has been working to get the word out about the fundraiser.  Find out more about the tournament.

You can nominate your own Hometown Hero.  WCHL has honored local members of our community everyday since 2002.
