Banks High School National Honor Society Students work at build site


On Saturday April 22, 2017, 7 students from the Banks High School National Honor Society spent the morning volunteering at the West Tuality Habitat for Humanity Home building site located at 1529 22nd Place in Forest Grove. The students perform this type of community service as part of their National Honor Society community service requirements.

The students helped our normal volunteer build crew in the various building process’s required to construct these homes. They used string trimmers to cut down tall grass, they filled wheelbarrows to move rock around the foundation of the house, and they assisted in moving materials for decking the house sub floor.  Their contribution of 32 hours of labor greatly helped the build crew stay focused on the technical aspects of the home’s construction.

The students who participated in this volunteer project are Mary Schorn, Samuel Martinez, Keegan Wise, Ellie Nieland, Trevor Thiessen, Emma McCourt and Alli VanLoo.dsc_0408
