Students were ready to complete an application for housing at the Granite City Housing Authority after listening to Executive Director Sharon Mathes. Sharon shared her career path and the history of the Granite City Housing Authority, which was established in 1939 by HUD, the Department of Housing and Urban Development. In 1940, 151 units were built and it was called Ridgedale Homes. In the 1950s, 300 units were added and it became known as Kirkpatrick Homes. Sharon has worked for the Granite City Housing Authority for 34 years and she has been the leader of all the development and improvements.

Students learned about the zero energy passive unit of housing on the property. It uses geothermal energy for heating and solar panels for electricity and is passive in the use of utilities. Sharon has written grants and uses her writing skills along with her accounting degrees as executive director. Sharon is a runner and and is training for an iron man competition. Her goal is to compete and run in all 50 states. She told students don't be afraid to try new things.
