The Legacy of a Passion

Ken Middleton's passion was Habitat for Humanity: helping empower families to become homeowners of safe, decent shelter they could afford to call their own when they had no other opportunity because their income was at the lower end of the scale. One of the most endearing photos of Ken was taken in September, 2008, at the Ground Breaking ceremoney for the Habitat house now completed and occupied by the Shulisa Barrett family at 608 Letcher Street. Ken helped young O'Marion Barrett turn a shovel of dirt on the house that now provides him his own bedroom and a safe, warm home in which to grow up.
The former member of Henderson Habitat's Board of Directors and member of the "Thursday Crew" was remembered and honored Wednesday afternoon with the Board's naming of the Henderson Foundation benefitting Habitat in his memory.
