Students set foundation for 11th VBEF house project

Shortly after the unveiling of the Virginia Beach Education Foundation's (VBEF) 10th house project at 1909 Evar Place, Technical and Career Education (TCE) Center students began work on the 11th house — right next door. Students enrolled in the TCE Center's masonry program have been working weekly, weather permitting, to set the foundation for the new house located at 1905 Evar Place. The VBEF program, The House Students Built (THSB), partners TCE students with experienced professionals in the community to construct a single-family dwelling for public sale. To date, 10 homes have been constructed, and net profits from the sale of each home support the VBEF's Adopt A+ Grants program. Photos of the work on the 11th house are available on the VBEF Facebook page and information about the 10th house for sale is available here. For more information about the THSB program, contact VBEF coordinator Debbie Griffey at debbie.griffey@vbschools.com or 757-263-1337.
