Pulaski County Schools and Habitat for Humanity signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Tuesday, June 17. This document states that Pulaski County High School will work with Habitat for Humanity to build homes for needy families.
Construction on the first home will begin this coming school year and will involve students in several technological classes including Computer Assisted Design (CAD), electricity, carpentry and cabinet making.
This program has been in the making for several months and the goal is to build one house every 18 months. This would ensure that students of every level would be able to participate in the building process, helping with hands on education and giving back to the community at the same time.
The house will be built on the high school campus and then be moved to its permanent location. At this time, the location for the first house is on Henry Avenue in Pulaski.
