High Students from Minnesota traveled over 1,000 miles to Calhoun County to spend their spring break working on a home for a local veteran and his family. 10 students from Totino-Grace High School in Fridley, Minnesota are investing their time and resources into leaving their mark in the City of Piedmont.
Instead of these students taking a typical spring break trip, they decided to give back to a deserving family through Habitat for Humanity of Calhoun County. Willam Mellas is visiting Alabama for the first time and he is proud to be apart of Collegiate Challenge.
Totino-Grace High School in Minnesota has had an established relationship with Habitat for Humanity since 2003. Students there are sent on 13 mission trips throughout the year. Those who participated in this trip say they are confident they will leave here accomplished, knowing they have impacted a family’s life in a positive way.
