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.”

But how much would it cost to restore Monroeville High to it original condition? If you don't answer I take it as "refused to comment"

What does that have to do with what is trying to be taught to them by this project? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

Pay him no attention, doggie mom. That's what he is looking for. Just a punk troll.
