Students Win Kudos for Helping Tornado Victims
Spring break was used to finish new houses in an Alabama community.
Tucker High School Habitat celebrates and honors the following members of our 2012 Collegiate Challenge Team.
Adult Advisors: Tracy Rojo from the Tucker Faculty along with community advisors Doug Humphrey, Shirley Hunter, Mariann Pate, Kay Stewart, and Jay York.
It’s remarkable to note that these students gave their spring break to serve families in the Shoal Creek community of Ashville, Al., a community devastated by the tornado that hit central Alabama on April 27, 2011.
What a privilege to work alongside the Harlow, Richardson, and Smith families to complete landscaping and finishing touches on their new homes. Words aren’t adequate to describe how meaningful it was to hear their stories. Such faith and resilience in the face of unthinkable circumstances.
The attached photo was taken at the dedication of the homes. A beautiful ending to an extraordinary week for Tucker High School Habitat.
Special thanks to Briana Dayton, THS Habitat Faculty Advisor, and Tracy Rojo, CC Team faculty sponsor and long time supporter of THS Habitat. Both are not only give tirelessly to Habitat, but they also embody the qualities so desparately needed in a place called school.
Good teaching matters most in education, and they are shining examples of good teaching. We’re grateful for their “ripple of influence” within Habitat and beyond!!
And last but not least. . .heartfelt thanks to all in the Tucker family and community who continue to support this ministry we call Habitat for Humanity. Our campus chapter is 10 years old and still thriving because of the many ways you support us!!
We have much to celebrate. . .and more to build!!
