STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – A Mississippi State employee will receive help from her co-workers and students to fulfill a dream.
Work will soon begin on the annual Maroon Edition Habitat for Humanity home.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday morning.
Keyana Triplett and three of her four children will live at the Azalea Lane home.
MSU leaders and Triplett are ready to get to work on the house.
“It is just a blessing for our university. This project helps us instill the importance of service and helping others, and that is part of our True Maroon education that we are so proud of at Mississippi State,” said MSU President Mark Keenum.
“It’s going to feel wonderful. Just being a homeowner is exciting by itself. I just want to thank MSU and Habitat for Humanity for giving me the opportunity to be a homeowner,” said future homeowner Keyana Triplett.
This will be the 11th Maroon Edition Habitat for Humanity home.
