Monroeville students help Habitat for Humanity

A preview of today's schools feature story, from Monroeville High School:

About 25 students from Monroeville High School’s National Honor Society worked on a construction project this past Wednesday with Firelands Habitat for Humanity, a local chapter serving Huron and Erie counties since 1990. 

The group installed windows, fastened insulation and caulked cracks on a quickly growing Winnebago Avenue home, Firelands Habitat for Humanity’s 85th area project. It should be completed June 30 for a local woman and her son.

Guidance counselor Jen Harvey, who oversees the high school’s National Honor Society, coordinated the hands-on service project because of her rewarding experiences volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. The day-long project will likely become an annual tradition because of its success, she said.

“When I was in college, it was a fun, great way to give back,” Harvey said. “We wanted to teach the kids to work together as a team while serving others.”

Senior Nathan Rasnick agreed.

“It feels great to work together to help people,” Rasnick said. “You can see you’re making a difference right away because a family will live in the house you’re building.”
