Mount Desert Island students are learning lessons in community, as well as construction thanks to a collaborative effort between Mount Desert Island High School and a local charity.
MDI High’s Habitat class, led by teacher Bruce Munger, recently completed a set of interior and exterior wall panels for a Hancock County Habitat for Humanity home. The wall panels are the seventh set to be completed by Munger’s class over the past six years.
“Bruce Munger and his Habitat class’s contribution is enormous to our small Habitat affiliate. They are able to construct high quality wall panels during the winter months while our volunteers are working on interiors of the current home. It is a Godsend,” said Jimmy Goodson, executive director of Hancock County Habitat for Humanity.
