HCSD Announces Dedication of House #16 in Habitat High Program
Habitat High Construction Instructor Rodney Presley and his construction students joined in the dedication celebration of Habitat High house number 16 this morning on Sasser Road in Flowery Branch. The home, built through coordination with Habitat for Humanity of Hall County, will now be occupied by Bruce and Miranda Hoover and their three sons, who joined the crew at intervals during the construction process.
The Habitat High program is truly one of a kind in that it allows for high school students to go onsite to build a Habitat for Humanity home in the Hall County community. Working alongside skilled craftsmen and other Hall Habitat for Humanity volunteers, the construction students apply learned skills in a very meaningful and productive way. The successful venture has been a partnership among the Hall County Board of Education, the North Georgia Homebuilders Association, and Habitat for Humanity of Hall County, which began with the building of the first home in 1998.
The next project for Habitat High will be participating in the first Habitat Community in Hall County. Named Cooper Glen, which is located on Baker Road, the community plan calls for the construction of around twenty (20) homes.
