Purdue sophomore Misha Ownbey, 20, of St. John, Ind., prepares drywall to be hung in the Gus Macker Habitat for Humanity house in Lafayette, Ind., on Feb. 10. The biology major joined Purdue's Habitat for Humanity student chapter as a freshman because she wanted to provide hands-on service in the community. Ownbey helped solicit donations from local businesses for the the 2006 Gus Macker 3-on-3 basketball tournament in Lafayette. Proceeds from the event are being used to build a Habitat home for single mother Lisa Bickett. (Purdue News Service photo/Jim Schenke)
