Last month, MAHFH’s very own Emma Rearick, a KSU regional & community planning student, was one of 59 students awarded to be honored with the 2016-2017 Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Graduate Fellowship from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
We are so proud of Emma and wish her all the best!
It has been a pleasure for all of us at Manhattan Area Habitat for Humanity to work with these amazing young African leaders. And what an honor to attend their graduation ceremony from the Staley School of Leadership Studies. We wish blessings and success to all of them as they leave Kansas for Washington DC and then back home to bring about positive change in their countries.
Laura Stark is one of our Bike & Build cyclists that was very seriously injured last week in Idaho. Tragically, her friend and fellow cyclist, Ann Davis, lost her life in this accident.
Bike & Build volunteers travel across the country to raise funds and awareness for affordable housing, and Manhattan Area Habitat was honored to be chosen as one of only eight stops on the Central US teams cross country journey.
