Starkville Area Habitat for Humanity and university representatives broke ground Wednesday [Nov. 30] on a new home benefiting an MSU family as part of the 14th annual Maroon Edition home-building partnership. The home will be the first of approximately 30 constructed at Kelly Estates, an 11-acre parcel in eastern Oktibbeha County, by Habitat volunteers, including MSU faculty, staff and students. The recipient family is headed by Angela Nichols, a Starkville native who has worked for MSU student housing services for 12 years. View more photos from this celebration of starting new here.
