The May 16 Itasca County Habitat for Humanity groundbreaking ceremony in Deer River for the home that will be owned by Stephanie Severson and her family was a momentous occasion for Habitat and Severson.

Itasca County Habitat for Humanity is celebrating its 40th year in the program and the home that will be built in the Aspenwood Addition is the 40th home they will be building.

“And,” said Severson, “I didn’t realize until today that it has been exactly three years to the day since I graduated from college.”

Severson, who has three children, Lawrence, 8, and five-year-old twins, Natalie and Madison, teaches preschool in Deer River.

The Itasca Habitat’s executive director Scott Stein welcomed everyone to the ceremony and introduced the partners in this project, the future family owners and Thrivent Financial represented by Financial Consultant Brad Nelson.The content you are trying to access is only available to members.
