Murtaugh participates in housing competition

Josh Murtaugh of Letcher County, a technology student at Eastern Kentucky University, recently participated in the Residential Construction Management Competition in Las Vegas, Nev., as part of the 2000 International Builders’ Show.

Murtaugh and three other EKU students submitted a written proposal for a housing division on campus during the competition, part of the show’s National Association of Home Build- ers Student Chapters activities. An oral defense was presented at the show.

The International Association of Homebuilders provided scholarships to defray costs, and the Homebuilders Association of Kentucky matched those funds, so the students were able to make the trip at no cost. Murtaugh attended Whitesburg High School and is the son of Louise and Jim Murtaugh of Sandlick.
