On Wednesday, October 31, students from the Business Management and Business Administrative Technology programs at Ogeechee Technical College volunteered at a Habitat for Humanity home-building project. Jamal Jackson, Michael Robinson, Ursala Hines, and Megan Williams were the students who participated. Students assisted by applying house wrap, installing windows, nailing brackets that connected the roof to the walls, installing siding, and, most importantly, providing a contagiously positive attitude. In addition to supporting a worthy cause, Business Management instructor, Alex Harris, and BAT instructor, Rodney Smith, thought this activity would provide an excellent opportunity for students to develop their teamwork and leadership skills. “Enhancing these types of interpersonal skills will give them an advantage upon entering the workforce,” stated Harris. Ogeechee Tech students and employees regularly volunteer with a variety of worthwhile community service projects.
