WKU’s Habitat for Humanity campus chapter will be sending three volunteer groups to Missouri, North Carolina and Pennsylvania for spring break trips next week.
Collegiate Challenge is an alternative break trip program run through Habitat for Humanity International’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 spring break trips March 4-10:
- Independence, Mo.: Audrey Castlen, a communication disorders major from Owensboro; Jason Klein, an architectural sciences major from Russellville; Brittney Perry, a graduate student in technology management from Baton Rouge, La.; and faculty member Bryan Reaka from the Department of Architectural and Manufacturing Sciences.
- Statesville, N.C.: Jeffry Edwards, an architectural sciences major from Murray; Abigail Greenwell, a public health major from LaGrange; Ethan Farabee, an accounting major from Shelbyville; Elizabeth Ebelhar, a communication disorders major from Owensboro; Missy Graehler, an undeclared major from Lexington; Jasey Beckman, a child studies major from Somerset; and Parker Wornall, a political science major from Paris.
