Six students will participate in the week-long Greene County Habitat for Humanity service project, in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, from Saturday, Oct. 12, to Saturday, Oct. 19. The trip will be led by Avery White, graduate assistant for the Center for Service Leadership.
Participating students will work on houses in some capacity; however, the exact service they will be doing will depend on the need and weather for the week.
“I hope students are able to witness some of the housing issues that are here in Greene County and begin thinking about possible solutions that could help,” White said. “There are many issues here in Greene County that most students are not aware of, and I know when I was a student, I was blind to many of these issues as well.”
The students attending the trip include:
- Jazmin Booker, sophomore nursing major from Monroeville, Pennsylvania
- Cory Love, senior accounting major from Altoona, Pennsylvania
- Zanea VanHorn, freshman nursing major from Mingo Junction, Ohio
- Troy Jones, senior marketing major from Washington, Pennsylvania
- Austin McDaniel, senior management major with a minor in marketing from Washington, Pennsylvania
