This week’s Hometown Heroes, presented by Hendrick Southpoint, are the local teachers in our area and the folks at Chapel Hill Tire who wanted to honor them.

Chapel Hill Tire is offering a free oil change for teachers in order to thank them for all their efforts.

“The teachers are doing great things,” said Aaron Marcum, the service adviser at Chapel Hill Tire’s University Place location. “They’re helping shape the young minds that are doing to run the world one day, so we appreciate all that they do.”
