Greenville Architect Wants To Get To Haiti To Put Skills To Use

One Eastern Carolina architect is trying to figure out how to get to Haiti and put his skills to use.

Greenville Architect Jimmy Hite is no stranger to Haiti.

Back in 2004 he helped design and build the country's first 4-year nursing school.

That nursing school is one of the only structures still standing in the town of Leogane, about 20-miles west of Port-au-Prince.

Because the local hospital is not usable, the nursing school has been converted into a hospital and that's where patients are being treated.

Hite says he needs to get to Haiti, survey the damage, and see what can be done to get the school back up and running as soon as possible.
