Terri Norton, associate professor of construction engineering, took a group of engineering students to Houston Oct. 18-22 to help with the recovery efforts after Hurricane Harvey. Here is her quick account of the trip:

Our service trip to Houston was a success. I took eight students down to Houston to assist with the repair of homes damaged by Hurricane Harvey. We partnered with the Seventh Day Adventists Disaster Response Team from Nebraska and the Little York Iglesia Adventista Del Septimo Dia (local church) to repair two homes of their members.

Our activities included drywall work, removal and rebuilding of a front deck/porch and subfloor repairs.

On Saturday, we drove down to Galveston, Texas, so the students could see the coastline and type of residential construction along the coast.
