7th Grade Guest Speaker
On Thursday, November 19th, Jamie Bozardt, Executive Director of Edisto Habitat for Humanity spoke to seventh graders at CEMS about Habitat’s mission and work in the local community to build homes for low income families. Teachers invited Jamie Bozardt to speak to students as part of the seventh grade project based learning class at CEMS. Students learned about the requirements for qualifying to be a Habitat family, including having a need for housing, having the ability to pay a monthly mortgage payment of about $350, and the contribution of 350 sweat equity hours to Habitat for Humanity. While students at CEMS do not meet the minimum age requirement to volunteer on a Habitat construction site, they learned they could assist Habitat for Humanity through advocacy, raising money through projects such as a bake sale or car wash, and by collecting canned goods, paper towels, and cleaning supplies. Many students were interested to learn that Deshaun Watson, quarterback for the Clemson Tigers, grew up in a Habitat home.
