During Spring Break, seven MBS students and three faculty chaperones spent a week on Johns Island, South Carolina where they volunteered with Sea Island Habitat for Humanity — continuing an MBS tradition for over 25 years.
The group spent the week working on three different houses that were in various stages of completion. The projects included landscaping, nailing together 2 x 4's, moving lots of lumber from one place to another, unstacking and restacking roof trellises, and installing weather barrier house wrap and windows.
“We all came back with many sore muscles and bruises but couldn't have had a more rewarding experience,” said faculty chaperone Andrea Deventer.
The students who participated in the trip were Spencer Anderson ’24, Caleb Lokken Bradford ‘24, Jessie Sperling ‘24, Kailin Kane ’24, Barra Shiffman ‘24, Chelsea Gonzaga Torres ‘24, and Colleen Ewing ’24. The chaperones were Andrea Deventer, Zach Mazouat and Rachel Platt.
