In the news: Stearney, students recall summer Habitat trip to Philippines

UW-Green Bay students and their Habitat for Humanity adviser, Dean of Enrollment Services Michael Stearney, were interviewed Monday (Sept. 8) for a WBAY, Channel 2 news story about the campus chapter’s summer trip to the Philippines. Reporter Kristyn Allen spoke with group members about the poverty they witnessed, the building processes used and the warm welcome they received during the July build. “We worked with building foundations for concrete homes, digging into rock with metal poles,” said student Courtney May. “Things you don’t see here because they have the tools and accommodations.” Added student Stephanie Diedrich: “They were very welcoming, into their community, and we did get to spend a lot of time with them.”
