Katie Williams isthe Habitat Goldsboro-Wayne 2017-18 Volunteer of the Year. Katie, vice president of corporate development at Daniels & Daniels Construction Co., is a current member of the Habitat Board of Directors.

More importantly, she is leading efforts to create Habitat Goldsboro-Wayne's first ever Homeowner Learning Lab where homeowners will learned practical home maintenance skills as part of the sweat equity process. These workshops include basic interior and exterior maintenance, basic plumbing and basic electric knowledge.

To make this idea a reality, Katie took the lead in designing the modules, the workbooks, recruiting volunteers and encouraging financial support from Daniels & Daniels. And so for all of that, we say a big "Thank you, Katie!"
