FORMER HOLLY SPRINGS FOOTBALL COACH PASSES AWAY
Jim Hynus, a veteran high school teacher and coach, died earlier this week of cancer at the age of 51.
Hynus, a graduate of Marshall University, had also served as an assistant coach at Apex and Purnell Swett High Schools during his career.
He came to Holly Springs when the new school opened and guided the football programs in its first four years of existence. The school started with a junior varsity program only and by the fourth year had qualified for the NCHSAA playoffs.
A public visitation will be held on Sunday for Hynus. The event will be held at Holly Springs High School from 2-6 p.m.
