Campus Chapter

In early August, East Lincoln High School Science teacher Robert Chapp and former student and AmeriCorps member Kelly McLain reconnected to start the first high school Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter in the state.

Mr. Chapp said he "wanted to begin a club at East Lincoln that students could really get behind, learn valuable sills, and that would look really good on college applications." The SIT committee at East Lincoln approved the club.

Led by president Jordan Spicola, 160 members joined. They broke the club down into 4 committees focusing on a Campus Chapter's four major functions: Educating, Advocating, Building, and Fundraising. Each committee is led by a chairperson. When we had a conference call with Habitat for Humanity International, International mentioned that this was the only school that has actually broke down the four functions into committees.

    Since the formation of East Lincoln's Habitat for Humanity campus chapter, multiple fundraising projects have been planned, students have been actively volunteering on the construction site, and have also began making plans to create a YouTube video advocating for Habitat for Humanity. The campus chapter truly cares, going above and beyond. Delanghy Burke, campus chapter treasurer, reached out to Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County and informed us that members are working on making a housewarming gift for our families with items such as food baskets, movies, toys, and treats for kids.

    The first fundraiser is set to take place on October 14th during tailgate before ELHS homecoming. There will be festival games and all proceeds raised will go to Habitat.
