October 24, Saturday morning, Tony Adams passed away after a year-long battle with cancer. Adams taught drafting and engineering classes at Chapel Hill for 49 years while impacting the lives of many students and adults.

“He loved the kids he taught so much and wanted to not only teach them ‘content,’ but teach them how to be responsible, caring people,” said Superintendent, Dr. Donni Cook.

Adams’ family set up a memorial service following a private funeral. The memorial service was for friends, students, and alumni to pay their respects since he was a man who was admired, by many, for his character and affluence in the Chapel Hill community.
