BRATTLEBORO STUDENTS STILL HELPING KATRINA VICTIMS WITH BUILDING PROJECT

by Craig Altschul

Brattleboro Union High School students Ethan Haddad, Charles Greene-Cramer, Ethan Mitnik, and their teacher, Tim Kipp, recently spent five days in Louisiana volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, says The Brattleboro Reformer. Kipp’s law class required students to complete a final project, one option of which was performing community service. The students decided to help fund some of the building projects, but Kipp encouraged them to take it to the next step. “This trip is about putting thought and knowledge into action,” says Kipp. “Education and learning doesn’t always happen in the classroom.” The students also were required to raise the $2,000 needed for travel expenses to New Orleans. They and 50 others will be working to give the victims a chance at a new life.
