Habitat For Humanity House Moving Day At SRHS

With work completed on the fourth Habitat for Humanity house built by students of the Weitz Academy of Construction at Seminole Ridge High School, moving day arrived Nov. 19.

The components of the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house were loaded onto seven tractor trailers, and then installed Nov. 20 on an awaiting home foundation in Lake Worth.

The 1,206-square-foot house is the fourth built by students at the SRHS Weitz Academy of Construction. Weitz donated its services as move manager and supplied several workers for the two-day process. Kauff’s Transportation Services and Priority Towing donated tractor trailers and drivers, while DC Crane Services donated a crane and its operator.

The Seminole Ridge construction academy program completes one Habitat house per year, and work on the fifth house is expected to begin in January.

Hawks Raise $2K in a Day — Seminole Ridge High School students, teaming with the University of Florida for the marathon event Transform Today, raised more than $2,100 in 26.2 hours to support UF Health Shands Hospital, a member of the Children’s Miracle Network of hospitals.

Among the events sponsored by Hawks and local businesses Froyolicious and Burger Fi was a Rivalry Night with Wellington High School and Palm Beach Central High School.

Seminole Ridge High School senior Alyssa Williams said that she is “extremely proud of all the hard work and effort,” and classmate Samantha Fisher agreed, adding, “Hard work can make a difference.”
