Eddie is from a small town of Millport, near Horseheads, NY and would like to start his own carpentry business after graduation. Eddie was drawn to the Study in the South program because it offered more intensive hands on experience, and he said with a smile, "less classroom time."
Working alongside of the home owner at the Habitat project in Mississippi has been a highlight for Eddie. He enjoyed installing the bamboo hardwood flooring and working with the Americorp crew. Other highlights have been the friendliness of the people in Bay St Louis, great food and fantastic weather.
