UMD Chancellor Martin and Two Student-Athletes Are Part of
NCAA-Habitat for Humanity Home-Building Team

NCAA Project Will Ship Completed Home to Gulf Coast
for Hurricane Katrina Recovery Effort

UMD Chancellor Kathryn A. Martin along with student-athletes Allison Boddy and Andrew Heieie will be a part of an NCAA Division II-Habitat for Humanity team which will build a home that will be shipped to the Gulf Coast to assist in Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts.

The frame of the home will be constructed on-site at the University of Indianapolis, on Tuesday, March 7 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. (eastern time). Chancellor Martin, Boddy and Heieie will work side-by-side with representatives from Habitat for Humanity, the NCAA National Office, and five NCAA Division II member institutions. The completed home will then be dismantled and shipped to the Gulf Coast for final assembly.

Chancellor Martin is a current member of the NCAA Division II Presidents' Council. In January she completed a two-year term as chair of the Council.

Volleyball standout senior Allison Boddy was honored in 2005 as an American Volleyball Coaches Association Division II All-American, and was named to the third team. The New Ulm, Minnesota native is the first libero in Division II history to be named to any of the 36 positions on the first, second, or third teams. She finished her career at the no. 2 position on the Bulldogs' defensive saves (digs) list with 1,702, just one shy of a tie for first place.

A sophomore from Apple Valley, Minnesota, Andrew Heieie is a UMD Business and Economics major, and a standout on the UMD men's baseball team. Both he and Boddy are members of the NCAA Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) at UMD.
