  • Jason Curtis of Chapel Hill High Named North Carolina Soccer Coach of the Year

    The winning tradition in Chapel Hill-Carrboro CIty Schools Athletics is powerful, and the accolades across the schools and sports continue to multiply. But even against the district backdrop of athletic victories and championships, the recent dominance of the mens and womens soccer teams from Chapel Hill High School is remarkable. Since becoming head coach in 2014, Jason Curtis has led his teams to three state championships, and earlier this month, he was named the National Federation of State High Schools (NFSH) 2017-18 North Carolina Coach of the Year for mens soccer.

  • Frank Porter Graham Elementary Students Go Shopping with Cops

    This year, The Optimist Club of Chapel Hill chose Frank Porter Graham Elementary School to send students as participants in the annual December event, Shop with a Cop. Many of the students had been counting down the hours for weeks. After the children received their special Optimist Club, Rudolph tee shirts, they boarded a bus, and then stared out their windows as they realized they were escorted by nearly a dozen officers on motorcycles and in patrol cars. The students enjoyed a full motorcade from Carrboro, blue lights flashing and sirens blaring, down Old Highway 86, all the way to the Walmart in Hillsborough.
