Juniors Serve Habitat for Humanity

The Class of 2020 had a great and exhausting day of service.
The junior class served a second time this year with Habitat for Humanity, furthering their exploration of government policy, the role of nonprofits, and whether housing should be a right for all citizens.   The weather was cool and the students made considerable progress on their construction tasks: measuring , sawing, and hammering to install a new flooring system. Their work last semester helped NOAHH to put 16 new families into Habitat houses for the holidays; today, they contributed almost 300 volunteer hours toward the new year's tally.   A special thanks to government teacher Carolyn Thompson Tapp, service coordinator Sarah Westfall, and chaperones Mr. Waddington, Dr. Cresson, Dr. Wright, Ms. Smith, and Mr. Morrell.
