GMC High School Students Help Build Habitat s First Youth-Build House in Georgia

(Milledgeville, GA) May 19, 2003 – GMC high school students and members of the National Honor Society recently worked on the Habitat for Humanity’s Youth-Build house in Milledgeville, GA, the first Youth-Build house being built in the state of Georgia. Mr. Harold Tessendorf, Habitat for Humanity, said, “We are very grateful for the work and assistance provided by GMC’s students. Together with MAJ Scott Seagraves and LTC John Thornton, they helped set the roof trusses, build lookouts for the roof eaves and did some landscaping work. This house is our affiliate’s 12th house in Milledgeville and our first Youth-Build house (and Georgia) – a deliberate effort to involve our local youth in the construction of a Habitat for Humanity house.”
