Ed Bedford is Wednesday’s Hometown Hero.

Ed is a founding board member of Extraordinary Ventures.  He’s been working in the autism community since moving to Chapel Hill almost 30 years ago.

Extraordinary Ventures  trains and employs young adults with autism and developmental disabilities who are aging out of the public school system.

Earlier this week, we honored Paige Morrow, executive director of Extraordinary Ventures.

Fred Black showcased Extraordinary Ventures on the July 16 episode of Non-Profit Showcase.

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