HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (AP) - A group of students from Northern
Kentucky University is trying to develop a proposal to bring
permanent housing to nearly 500 people in earthquake-shattered
The group, in a construction management class, is working with
Harry Lyness, who sits on the board for Hearts and Hands for Haiti,
a nonprofit that has operated for more than 25 years delivering
relief to the people of Haiti with new construction projects.
The group on May 3 will present its proposal, which would
provide housing for approximately $400 per person.
Construction management students at the school are working on
three projects as part of a class requirement - the Haiti housing
project; a project to renovate NKU's baseball complex; and
renovation of the Winton Hills Medical Center in Cincinnati for a
new dental office.
