Sarah Brandstetter, Bonner Scholar coordinator at Waynesburg University, will lead a group of eight University students to build Greene County homes during the students’ Thanksgiving Break. The students will serve Friday, Nov. 16, through Tuesday, Nov. 20.

“I am very excited to lead the Greene County Habitat for Humanity Mission Trip for the third year,” Brandstetter said. “This trip allows me to share what I love about Greene County with students while we are giving back to the community.”

While serving, the students will assist with building homes in the Greene Country area to address substandard housing issues. They will also coordinate and implement a fundraising project to support Greene County Habitat for Humanity.

“Waynesburg students bring excitement, willingness, fresh ideas, open minds and love to Greene County through the Habitat Mission Trip,” Brandstetter said.

Students participating in the mission service trip include:

  • Olivia Bakke, senior biology major from Monaca (Beaver County Christian School)
  • Bethany May, senior business management major from Carmichaels (Carmichaels High School)
