Student to spend spring break building houses

By Neha Nimmigadda

The fourth annual Habitat for Humanity trip will begin next Monday when 24 students and six faculty members travel to New Orleans. Students and faculty will work with Habitat for Humanity to help build and re-build local housing. The trip was started three years ago by Olivia Kestin ’09 after she visited hurricane-ravaged New Orleans with her family and friends and wanted to offer the experience to other students.

“Being able to put a face and a personality on the people that you’re building the house for is a really unique experience too,” trip chaperone Father J. Young said.
