Crystal “Seymour” Faatoia is in her 4th year of high school at JDHS and is in her second year of house build. Crystal’s favorite part of the House Build class is learning more basic carpentry skills such as framing, cement work, and insulation as she likes to do more hands on things rather than being chained to a desk all day long. Crystal is looking forward to the Habitat for Humanity trip to Florida this spring break and is working very hard to raise enough money to make the trip a reality. She attended the trip last year when she was a junior and learned multiple things like installing windows, demolition, and to the importance of sunscreen. Additionally, she loves to spend time with her baby niece and wearing shorts. Crystal’s hobbies include writing fiction, drawing, singing, and eating oranges. Crystal would like to say thank you to SAGA, Valley Lumber, Don Abel’s, Bullick Roofing, and Habitat for Humanity for supporting and helping out with the House building program.
Jon Edillor is in his senior year at JDHS. Jon’s favorite part of the House Build Class is being able to leave school and work on a house that someone will live in one day. Jon is looking forward to putting down roofing for the house and is very impressed by how well all the students work together. In addition to being a student, he is a receptionist at Don Able’s and likes taking long vacations in San Diego. Jon’s hobbies include playing in a band, longboarding, and watching movies.
