2021 Student Organization Leadership Awards

We are excited to share that App Builds a Home has been awarded the 2021 Community Impact Award! This award recognizes a club that has contributed time, support, or money on a local level to better the Boone community. 

Kayla McDougle, one of the ABAH co-directors, was also awarded the 2021 Outstanding Achievement Award. This prestigious award is designed to recognize an outstanding member within an organization for all of their individual hard work. This award is presented to a student that, through their achievements, makes a valuable contribution and lasting impact on the Appalachian State University campus and/or surrounding community.

All of us on the ABAH advisory board are thankful for the opportunity to serve the local community and are proud to be recognized by App State's Office of Campus Activities and Club Council!
