Sixth SRHS ‘Habitat House’ On The Way

Students in the nationally accredited Seminole Ridge High School Weitz Construction Academy watched as another Habitat for Humanity house left campus recently — the sixth student-built house in as many years.

Under the supervision of academy instructor Rick Terkovich, academy students completed the roof trusses, the framing and drywall, the plumbing and electrical, the painting, and various other construction tasks for the house, which was loaded up and transported to a West Palm Beach home site for assembly, after which Habitat for Humanity will present the house to a local family.
