The Mason High School FFA Department has teamed up with Habitat for Humanity on Habitat’s newest house, which will be located on Avenue D. The house will belong to Audrey Morquecho and her daughter Khrysta, and they will move in this spring.
High School Ag teacher Lance Rasch supervised the project along with Habitat Board member Keith Kahn and Habitat Care-a-Vanner Frances Harless. Frances has been coming to Mason for six years to assist with Habitat builds so she has become familiar with Mason. She reads the Mason County News on-line every week, and she has been following the Punchers!
Mr. Rasch was especially pleased to become involved with the project because it allowed his students real world experience with green building, plus it coincides with the curriculum within the Career and Technology Program. Pre-cut fabrication of the lumber means there is almost no waste. The students were responsible for unloading the lumber and cutting it to the exact specifications provided in Mr. Kahn’s spreadsheet. The cut lumber was loaded up and delivered to the Habitat warehouse the following day.
Although all the students enrolled in Mr. Rasch’s classes took part in this day long project, there are just a few pictured here. Edgar Leon, Chucky Martinez, Fransisco Leon and Jack Graves.
