Auburn Opelika Habitat for Humanity would like to say thank you to Kelsey Wynne and to all of her team.
Last Friday, Wynne presented Habitat construction leaders Richard Rogers, Gatz Riddell, Jim Newton and Gary Keever with checks for $600 to purchase a much-needed RIGID table saw. This presentation took place in front of Habitat home #69 which was completed and dedicated last week.
Wynne is a 5th year thesis student in Architecture from Dallas, Texas. She has volunteered with H4H in Dallas and was part of a team of AU Architecture students who helped design and build highly energy efficient homes for Auburn Opelika Habitat. She also serves as President of Auburn University College of Architecture, Design and Construction Ambassadors. She has volunteered on worksites with AU Panhellenic, who is another one of our community partners.
Wynne is a Top 5 Candidate for AU Miss Homecoming 2020. Each candidate chose a platform and cause to support. She chose Habitat for Humanity because of her passion for volunteering with, and advocating for, this organization. Her efforts included promoting awareness of Habitat and fundraising with students, AU Alumni, friends and family to raise $600 to purchase the new table saw for Habitat construction.
“Thank you, Kelsey Wynne, Professor David Hinson, and Auburn University for helping us build homes, community, and hope,” said Mark Grantham, Executive Director of Auburn Opelika Habitat for Humanity.
