The Clay County (Florida) Habitat for Humanity chapter recently celebrated a virtual dedication for its newest homeowner, who moved with her 3-year-old son into a house on which Penn College students and staff worked over an “alternative spring break” in March. “At this site specifically, the students installed all the windows and did some other work at the property,” said Sammie L. Davis, coordinator of diversity and student engagement, in sharing the chapter’s celebratory news on YouTube. “The story of the family moving in is super touching. You will see some familiar faces in the video, too, and they mention Penn College at the end for contributing.” Davis was joined on the trip (taken before COVID-19 precautions affected the spring semester) by Residence Life’s Cathy E. Gamez, coordinator for Dauphin Hall, and 16 student volunteers.
