Habitat Founder honored

December 2, 2003

Americus-- The founder of Southwest Georgia's most well-known non-profit organization is honored as the "2003 Executive of the Year."

The Non-Profit Times, which is the leading publication for charities, selected Habitat for Humanity founder Millard Fuller as this year's recipient. There are more than a million non-profits in the United States.

Fuller says he was shocked to be selected from so many, "To have the privilege of heading this world-wide ministry is an honor in itself. And then for this leading publication to single me out for executive of the year was something I didn't expect. It came out of the blue and literally shocked me."

The semi-monthly paper picked Fuller for his leadership as president of Habitat. In 27 years Habitat has built more than 150,000 homes world-wide.
