Talk about being invested in your students' work. After students spent last school year building a house through the East Kentwood High School residential construction class, Principal Omar Bakri bought it. "I wasn't planning on it," said Bakri. "I stopped by the worksite to support the students and teachers. When I walked into the house, my jaw dropped. I fell in love with it right away"
