Today’s kickoff included a special guest. Fourteen years ago, Carly Morris was a student participating in Olympic High’s first Habitat home build. After completing the program at Olympic, Carly went on to attend Appalachian State University where she earned a degree in construction management. Employed by a large commercial construction firm here in Charlotte, Carly is now a senior project manager overseeing construction of the new West Charlotte High School.
“I’m honored that they asked me to come talk to the students,” said Carly. “When you are a teenager, you don’t understand the gravity of what you are involved in.” By participating in a Habitat build “you are a part of changing someone’s life.”
