Leon Hammond has worked at the Restore for over 10 years doing pretty much anything that needs to be done; he is our trusty jack of all trades. Leon, a son of a pastor, is a true Cabarrus county native; he has planted his roots here from the beginning. Growing up you could find Leon reading his bible, playing basketball at Northwest High School or strumming his guitar.
Habitat Cabarrus’ Dana Conner Richardson Memorial Scholarship was recently awarded to Nishara Boone. During high school, Nishara participated in JROTC for 4 years and tutored 5th grade students. Nishara is employed part-time at Chick-fil-a Concord Commons, whose owners John and Patrizia Charping are devoted Habitat supporters. Nishara and her mom Jackie are our 150th homeowners and their home was this year’s Collegiate Challenge build.
