WKU’s Habitat for Humanity campus chapter will be sending three volunteer groups to Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi for winter break projects Jan. 15-21.
Collegiate Challenge is an alternative break trip program run through Habitat for Humanity’s Youth Programs and volunteer mobilization department. The program offers students an opportunity to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity affiliates from across the country during breaks in their academic year.
The program works to build houses and hope in communities. Students learn a great deal about building, issues of substandard housing, working and living within a community, cultural differences in different parts of the country and most of all themselves as a result of the program.
Here is a list of WKU students and faculty participating in the winter break trips:
- Athens, Ala: Ben Phillips, agriculture major from Henderson; Travis Pritchard, construction management major from Munfordville; Brittany Steadman, nursing major from Falmouth; Adam Wilck, architectural science major from Franklin, Tenn.; Lisa Yeager, art major from Eddyville. The group will be working on the foundation and framework of a Habitat house.
- Eastman, Ga.: Jarrod Bryant, architectural science major from Elizabethtown; Audrey Castlen, speech pathology major from Owensboro; Tyler Hirt, construction management major from Santa Claus, Ind.; Sarah Jones, architectural science major from Bowling Green; Renae Meek, graphic design major from Villa Hills; Noah Onkst, architectural science major from Erlanger; Devon Wells, construction management major from Brooklyn, N.Y.; and Bryan Reaka, chapter advisor. The group will be installing windows and vinyl siding at a Habitat project.
