In the news: More coverage for Habitat’s Philippines trip

We’ve told you here before about the UW-Green Bay Habitat for Humanity chapter’s plans to build homes this summer in typhoon-ravaged Bicol, Philippines. The group’s efforts were featured earlier this month on WBAY, Channel 2, and now the Wausau Daily Herald has done its own story featuring two graduates of Central Wisconsin’s Marathon High School. Sarah Busko and Jordan Fraser are two of the 10 UW-Green Bay students planning to make the trip, along with Habitat adviser and Dean of Enrollment Services Mike Stearney. “We are literally going halfway around the world,” Busko told Daily Herald reporter Keith Uhlig. “We will be staying and working in a location just 15 degrees north of the equator.
