WKU and Habitat for Humanity Present New Home to Family

A Bowling Green family has a new house, just in time for the New Year.

On Dec. 22, Western Kentucky University and Habitat for Humanity presented Ava Barber and her family with a new home on West Main Street in Bowling Green.

Western raised all the funds for the home, which in the end will total $50,000.

The University also provided around 300 volunteers for building the home.

"It has been fifteen months since the beginning of this house, and it was a tremendous learning curve, and we have poured ourselves into it heart and soul, and to see it happen and to see them move in is a glorious thing," said WKU Professor Laura Leach.

Volunteers worked once a week on the house and finished on Dec. 19, when eight students put on the final coat of paint.
