Local Starkville residents, Santana Turnipseed and Chadrick Robinson, were gifted a home amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
After waiting patiently, the Starkville couple received their first home after the virus disrupted the construction schedule by 3 months. Santana and Chadrick have put in a tremendous amount of effort and dedication into their new home before it was even finished. The pair have moved into a 5-bedroom, 2-bath home and their long-standing friends could not be happier and proud of the happy couple.
Miesha Edwards, personal friend of the family, has known Santana and Chadrick for more than 15 years and was nothing short of “proud” for the family’s “opportunity to grow with a nice roof over their heads.” Edwards says that Santana and Chadrick serve as “energetic and motivational individuals for people who are looking for a home and trying to provide for their family.” Friends describe Turnipseed and Robinson as loving, hands-on with their children, and dedicated.
Here at Habitat for Humanity, we believe that God’s children should have a decent place to live and we could not be more happy for Santana and Chadrick. This is the largest home ever constructed by the Starkville Area Habitat for Humanity organization. The new home is sure to be enough room for the 7 person household. We were very ecstatic that this 12th Maroon Edition home was supported by MSU and we look forward to the next home. Congratulations again to Santana Turnipseed and Chadrick Robinson. MSU President, Dr. Mark E. Keenum, was in attendance of the home dedication ceremony and spoke a few words of encouragement and a blessing over the new couple’s home.
