The ABC television network has scheduled the national broadcast for the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" episode featuring the Holt and mid Michigan community build project led by Mayberry Homes that constructed a new home for Arlene Nickless and her family. MSU provided hundreds of volunteers, food, materials and scholarships for the Nickless children. The show will air at 8 p.m. Nov. 30 at the Breslin Center on MSU's campus.
Mayberry is hosting the “Thank you mid Michigan! An Extreme Celebration” event for the public to watch the show on the screens at Breslin to thank the volunteers and contractors who donated their time to the five-day project. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Entertainment, including Three Men and a Tenor, and giveaways will be provided throughout the night. Admission and parking is free and concessions will be open.
MSU students from the School of Planning, Design and Construction and College of Engineering , helped on multiple projects at the site, including landscape design, construction management and interior decorating. Engineering students assisted a designer with a special room in the house. In addition, volunteers from multiple student organizations on campus helped serve food, clean-up and support fellow students working on the project.
Volunteers on the project who attend the viewing are encouraged to wear their red or blue volunteer shirts.
