High School Student Nathan Babcock Makes Mask Tension Relievers for First Responders
Meet Nathan Babcock. Nathan is a 16-year-old Hickory High School student who is making a big difference in the Chesapeake community. On June 30, 2020, Nathan donated 500 mask tension relievers to the Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office. The tension reliever attaches to the mask straps behind each ear and rests on the back of the head. The idea is to make masks more comfortable by removing some of the pressure placed on the mask wearer’s ears. Using his 3D printer and experience from his high school’s robotics team, Nathan has been donating these tension relievers to first responders and front line workers since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The sheriff’s office is so grateful for his generosity; the Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office team feels truly blessed to serve such a great community!
