"Every kid there has in some way really seriously struggled with school and since then or in their time at spring have begun to grow in incredible ways."
Marshall Allston-Yeagle was born and raised in Champaign-Urbana. He grew up conscious of the racial issues deeply rooted in America even from a younger age, and used art and poetry to express his concerns. When attending Uni High, he became involved in projects like Habitat, and was deeply moved by the trips there - they opened his eyes to the situation in the Delta. Influences like his father and Mr. Sutton led him to be a Habitat leader. Allston-Yeagle enjoys being a part of something that he believes does good for people, and hopes to continue working with Habitat.
