In the news: UW-Green Bay Habitat chapter plans trip to Philippines

The UW-Green Bay chapter of Habitat for Humanity has sights set on its first international trip, a journey to typhoon-ravaged Bicol, Philippines this summer. WBAY, Channel 2’s Kristyn Allen came to campus Monday (May 5), interviewing several students and their chapter adviser, Dean of Enrollment Services Michael Stearney, for a story that ran during the 5 p.m. newscast. “Based on what we can infer so far, the students would be working in a community that’s being built,” Stearney said. “The homes that they build there are modest, but very durable.” Added student Sarah Busko: “We’re kind of building different homes than we do here in the United States, so that will be a huge difference.
