Episode 5 showcases the critically important role the business community played in Project 24 and chronicles the obstacles that they confronted along the way. Norman Henry, the president of Builders of Hope, architect Ted Larson from the firm Larson and Pedigo, and home construction contractor Bill Wait of Williamsburg Custom Homes formed the team required to make the Williams home a reality.

Along the way, coaches and students from high schools such as A. Maceo Smith, Sunset, Woodrow Wilson, W.T. White, Kimball, Seagoville, Skyline, Highland Park, and Molina volunteered to help landscape the Williams’ new home.

We are reminded that this home would not have been possible without: student leadership and a strong principal at Pinkston; the servant hearts and professionalism of Norman Henry, Bill Wait, and Ted Larsen, the donations from a wide variety of charities and businesses who gave cash and in-kind services; the students from DISD and surround districts, and the media who chronicled this effort along with way.
