From Caroline County Habitat for Humanity
Caroline County Habitat for Humanity is pleased to announce the first ever Garland Gravatt Community Service Awards. The honorees will be recognized during our 3rd annual Build the Love Event held on 2/3/2020 at the Timbers Restaurant in Ladysmith. Mr. Gravatt was one of the founding members of Caroline County Habitat for Humanity who had a love and passion for serving his community. These awards are given to community members who build community and hope through their jobs or volunteer service.
This year we are recognizing three individuals to receive the Gravitt Award; Archie Roberts, the Career and Technical Education Carpentry Teacher at Caroline County High School. Mr. Roberts is being recognized for his leadership of the CTE carpentry class who helped build Caroline Habitats first round of Self-help Builds. Mr. Roberts’ and the student’s efforts have been essential to our success.
The second recipient is Cornelius “Neal” Black, Technical Drawing teacher at Caroline High School. Mr. Black’s leadership and heart for his students was an essential ingredient in the success of our builds.
Last, but certainly not least, the third Gravatt award goes to Frank Leaming. Frank has served on the Caroline Habitat Board for 11 years. His leadership has helped us transition from an all volunteer organization to having staff. This allowed our organization to be awarded the USDA 523 Mutual Self-Help Grant; which will bring in millions of dollars in affordable housing ,and soon, funding for home repairs for years to come. The community and the press are invited to join our partner families and community leaders including; Habitat Home Buyers, The Habitat Board of Directors, as well as senior school leadership and county officials.
