Jason Braman, a senior from Houghton Lake, met both Mich. Gov. Jennifer Granholm and Millard Fuller, founder of Habitat for Humanity International, during a Habitat for Humanity breakfast in Detroit Oct. 23. The breakfast was at Second Ebenezer Baptist Church in Detroit. At the breakfast, it was announced that Detroit and Benton Harbor have been selected by President Jimmy Carter and Habitat for Humanity International as host sites for the Jimmy Carter Work Project in 2005.

Joseph Richard Preville, development director for Genesee County Habitat for Humanity, praised Braman for his support of Habitat for Humanity on campus. "Habitat for Humanity is built on volunteers," Preville said. "We have been blessed by the generosity of so many Kettering students over the years. We couldn't do our vital work without them."

Braman led the effort at Kettering for Shed Works 2003 this spring, when students and staff helped build sheds to be moved to area Habitat houses. Braman recently led a Student Olympics fundraiser to benefit Carriage Town Ministries.
