Mary Whatley and Hayden Vick are Friday’s Hometown Heroes. They are both UNC students who volunteer with Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools.
Mary Whatley helps ESL students at Carrboro High School. She works with a lot of people who are new to the United States. She specifically helps the students during their math period.
Hayden Vick volunteers with first and third graders at Estes Hills Elementary School. He helps with math and spelling. He is also a male role model for the young children.
Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools is always looking for volunteers. CHCCS volunteer coordinator George Ann McCay says she actively recruits UNC students to help out in the schools every year. Find out how you can help.
You can nominate your own Hometown Hero. WCHL has honored local members of our community everyday since 2002.
