Becky Mitchell ’83 is using innovation and her sewing talents in this time of need to make masks and hats for healthcare workers. Becky shared the following:
I am making masks out of cotton with a hepa filter in the middle of the two layers, which can block out 99% of virus, pollution etc. I’m also making hats that the nurses can wear into the ICU so they can have a washable hat, because as we know there isn’t enough to go around! I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that my sewing skills would help with anything.
Allison Broeffle ’83 nominated Becky for this Kent Hero spotlight and concluded her nomination of Becky’s work creating masks with a hepa filter by noting, “Father Sill would say that is self-reliance!”
