Faculty Help Build Homes in High Point

10.17.2013

Habitat for Humanity FacultyHIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 17, 2013 – Rain wasn’t enough to deter a group of High Point University faculty and staff members from helping build a house in their community.

The group joined Habitat for Humanity of High Point, Archdale and Trinity today to build two homes for families in the Washington Terrace subdivision. Nine faculty and staff members worked on the homes, which are just a few miles away from HPU, by adding finishing touches to one house and building the frame of the second.

The project was organized by Tim Linker, director of HPU’s Office of Sponsored Projects. Faculty who participated included:

• Dr. Matt Carlson, assistant professor of English
• Dr. Paul Forshey, assistant professor of management
• Dr. Adam Graham-Squire, assistant professor of mathematics
• Dr. Sojung Kim, assistant professor of communication
• Mary Newsome, administrative assistant for research administration and sponsored programs
• Dr. Sarah Nielsen, assistant professor of human relations
• Dr. Karen Summers, instructor of English
• Dr. Erica Zuhr, assistant professor of mathematics

“Habitat for Humanity is something I’ve always wanted to be a part of,” said Zuhr. “I’m so glad HPU gave us this opportunity to come together and give back to our community.”
