By William Worrilow, President of the Davidson College Chapter of Habitat for Humanity
For the past year, we have been fundraising for our own Wildcat house. Because of this, being able to participate in the actual build helped me to put our goal into perspective and see how much our efforts matter to the Davidson Community.
The build brought together not only Davidson College students, but also Davidson College Presbyterian Church members and Davidson College alumni. Being able to work side by side with students, alumni, church members, and Bill, one of the homeowners, an amazing experience. It was great to watch as the Davidson alumni and the students sang the Davidson Alma Mater in unison as they constructed the walls.
I would have to say that the best part of the entire morning was the raising of the exterior walls. Listening to Bill lead the count on raising each wall touched the hearts of everyone who was there.
