Thomas More College Students spend Spring Break volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in Okaloosa County.
Once again Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, Kentucky sent 21 students and 4 chaperones to spend their spring break working on a home for an Okaloosa County family. Instead of just lounging on the beach as so many of their counterparts do, they worked hard for 5 days, putting the shingles on the roof, siding, flooring, and painting the inside and outside of the house. The visitors stayed in Fort Walton Beach at St. Simon's Episcopal Church on the Sound. This is the 11th time St. Simon's has hosted students while they work on a Habitat House. The week kick started with a welcome dinner and two check presentations to Habitat for Humanity. The first from St. Simon's Episcopal Women for $1,500.00, and the second for $3,750.00 from Thomas More College Business Society. We even had a visit from Laura Hussey at WEAR TV3!
