A local school volunteer will soon become a homeowner thanks to Habitat for Humanity.
Wednesday morning, members of the community alongside children from Highland Elementary School gathered for the ground blessing of Pam Hunt’s soon-to-be home.
Hunt has been a volunteer at Highland Elementary for the last 20 years. She tells 13 News she’s anxious for the floor to be put down at her new home because the walls have already been built.
This is the first time Hunt will be a homeowner.
“The people that were here, I do deeply appreciate them being here,” said Hunt. “It meant a lot to me, it means a lot to me, and it’s something that will always be with me.”
Hunt says she actually used to live at a house right across the street from where she’ll soon move in. She tells 13 News she’s excited to be back in the neighborhood she had called home for over 50 years.
Hunt expects to be able to move into her brand new home sometime in the spring.
