Habitat would like to congratulate Kelly Antolic (right), Co-chair of the Youth United steering committee, on her recent graduation from Rex Putnam High School. It is no surprise to Habitat staff and volunteers that Kelly’s hard work and dedication led her to become the valedictorian of her 2010 class. Her dedication to Habitat and Youth United has helped raise funds to sponsor a home for a family in need in the Lents Landing neighborhood. Walls on the home were raised on March 6, and is scheduled to be completed this fall.

Kelly plans on attending Western Washington University in the fall with the hopes of eventually working with non-profit organizations.
