  • My Home NC: Conner Stroud — We travel to Rutherfordton to meet one of the top-ranked wheelchair tennis players in the world, but the incredible thing is 15-year-old Conner Stroud also plays #2 seed on his able-bodied high school tennis team at Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy. Conner was born without hip joints, ankles, femurs or knees, but that doesn't stop him from being ranked the #1 junior wheelchair tennis player in the United States and #9 in the world. Conner hopes his determination and drive against all odds inspires others to follow their dreams. (Rutherford Co.) 
  • Apex Police Veterans Training — When police officers are called to a crisis situation, the hope is to talk the suspect out of it. When the suspect is a military veteran suffering from PTSD, traditional police training is not always good enough. Now local police are training other North Carolina agencies in a new option for solving these special situations. (Wake Co.) 
  • Red Cross Hero — Since WWII, every president has designated March as Red Cross Month. In recognition of this, we profile 12-year Red Cross volunteer, Darryll Maddux, Wake County Disaster Action Team Coordinator. (Wake Co.)
  • NC Science Now: Exposure Science — It’s no secret that chemicals surround us; in the air, water, food, clothes, furniture. But which are dangerous? Remember the concern over toxins in water bottles a few years ago? Those warnings came from toxicologists in Research Triangle Park who specialize in Exposure Science. (Research Triangle Park)
  • Presley Barker: Guitar Prodigy — Growing up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Presley Barker developed a respect and appreciation for Bluegrass and old time music by listening to Doc Watson on the radio. He started his own music career at the age of seven. In just a few short years he has progressed to performing on stage with the IBMA All Stars. (Wilkes Co.)
