Please join us as we break ground on the 16th home sponsored by Newport News Shipbuilding, in memory of Ron Nelson (longtime Habitat construction supervisor) and in memory of Everett Jordan (longtime Shipyard employee). These visionary men met at the start of the Shipyard-Habitat partnership over 15 years ago and, as a result, a friendship was born. Ron worked tirelessly with Habitat since 1999, building a majority of the homes we sell in partnership with low- and moderate-income families. Everett spent 44 years with the Shipyard in a variety of jobs, ultimately retiring as the director of the Apprentice School.
This Shipyard house is special because it will celebrate the lives of both Ron and Everett, two very special people!
We hope you will join us for this ceremony!
