School Chiefs Help Habitat

The superintendents took part in the house-renovation session, titled KISA Superintendent Build Day 2013, hosted by Charles Rushmore, a financial advisor who works with districts. The house on Visser Street is one of 10 in a two-block area to benefit from Habitat for Humanity services. Four are new constructions and six are rehabilitations to be completed this year.

Rushmore, a longtime volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, said he wanted to offer a way for superintendents to de-stress and “do something completely different.”

“It’s a day of bonding for the superintendents,” he said.

A Grand Rapids woman, who has two children, will own the house.
