Ben Logan is getting plenty of work experience with Habitat for Humanity for his future career. In his last year at Grace College, Logan is working on his degree as an intern in fundraising and development with Habitat for Humanity. While attending school, he is also working part-time as the assistant manager at the Habitat for Humanity Resale Outlet.
As a Grace student, Logan is participating in a blended degree program allowing him to graduate in May with both a bachelor’s and master’s degree. His undergraduate degree is focused on environmental science. His master’s degree will be in nonprofit management.
