RHS Class finishing another Habitat House

(Glen Mitchell / Pitchengine Communities)* (Riverton, Wyo.) - Teams from Hampton Inn and the Riverton High School Geometry in Construction program joined forces with the most recent Habitat for Humanity homeowner to install siding this last Saturday. Supervisors from both Habitat for Humanity and the Riverton High School were on site to direct the efforts. The homes are built on site at the RHS James H. Moore Career Center and, when finished, moved to the homesite. New home owners are required to work 500 “Sweat Equity Hours” as a means of having a vested interest in their new home. Volunteers, such as family and friends of the homeowners, are allowed to volunteer to assist the homeowner in achieving up to half of their Sweat Equity Hours. This house is the seventeenth home constructed by Habitat for Humanity and the second of three homes to result from a partnership between Habitat and Riverton High School. In the fall of 2013, Habitat entered into a partnership with the Riverton High School Geometry in Construction (GIC) program. Providing both core and elective credits for students, the GIC program divides the student's time between in-class geometry learning and hands-on practical application of the learned principles through construction. Students in the GIC program are also eligible for concurrent college credits through CWC. [image: Inline image 1] *(h/t Glen Mitchell / Pitchengine Communities)* *#county10 #news *
