Student-Funded Habitat Home Dedicated

Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN, Tenn. - A new Habitat for Humanity home was dedicated on Sunday, but this one was a little different. That's because it was funded exclusively by high school students.

Seven Williamson County High Schools pitched in to raise money and help build the home. 

The new energy-efficient home is on 9th Street in downtown Franklin. The new owner, Pamela Pointer grew up in Franklin and worked side-by-side with the students to make it happen.

"The build was about 5 weeks, and it's been great working with all the high school kids and all my volunteers," said Pointer. "Everyone is so nice, and actually I'm gonna miss everyone."

This was the 133rd home built by the Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County.
