The Illinois State University/Illinois Wesleyan University (ISU/IWU) Joint Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter spent the 2018–2019 school year building the 25th house in the chapter’s 24-year history.
The latest home build was a major milestone for the award-winning chapter. A house blessing was held April 27, during which keys for the new home at 904 Bryan Street in Normal were turned over to the Yetimbi/Itukola family.
“It is a remarkable achievement and partnership between the two campuses and McLean County Habitat,” said Gary Klass, a founder of the student chapter and professor emeritus in Illinois State’s Department of Politics and Government.
