HIBBING - It's not every day that building a house is part of a class project.
But for Iron Range high school and college students, it is.
The project is through Habitat for Humanity where volunteers build homes for a low income family in need.
It is the seventh home in Hibbing students have built.
“I think students will have a real sense of pride, not only 'hey I built that house', but, 'I partnered with a low income family so I could help them build a home,'” explained North St. Louis County’s Habitat for Humanity executive director, Nathan Thompson.
Construction on the home has already started, but Wednesday morning at 9:00 a.m. is the official groundbreaking ceremony when students will meet the family moving into the house for the first time.
