Geneva College students help remove carpet from one of the Huss classrooms during a service-learning spring break trip in March 2012.  All of the classrooms at Huss feature maple floors that we hope to refinish.  Unfortunately, the carpet was installed primarily by gluing it directly to the hardwood floors, so it will take quite a...
