Tysen Williams, a member of YouthBuild Akron, looks at the AMHA house that he, along with a group of about 13 other students, helped rehabilitate, after attending a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the home on Wednesday in Akron, Ohio. The home, which was built by students who were mostly school dropouts, is expected to achieve LEED platinum status, a rare achievement in green building. (Ed Suba Jr./Akron Beacon Journal)
