DC Everest students help build Habitat for Humanity home
WESTON (WAOW) -- For the 56th time, Habitat for Humanity is moving a family into a new home in the Wausau area.
The dedication ceremony was Sunday for a house in Weston that started being built in September.
DC Everest High School helped with the build.
Habitat leaders say during the school year, students in Everest's build program worked on the house two periods a day for five days a week.
"They learn important lessons like cooperation and working as a part of a group, things that are somewhat intangible when you think about them in terms of the construction of a house, but they're important life lessons," said Berland Meyer, Habitat's construction chair.
It won't be long until Habitat for Humanity completes its 57th house.
