MISSION – Three Veterans Memorial High School students were extremely busy during the COVID-19 quarantine, said the Mission Consolidated Independent School District.

Lucas Dovalina, Marco Rivera and Eduardo Lucio collectively started making face shields for first responders. It was an idea that came from a conversation Lucas Dovalina had with his mother.

The district said the trio started making face shields, a process that took 2 hours to make just one face shield in the 3D printer.

Dovalina, Rivera, and Lucio were asked to make 40 face shields for the Mission CISD Nursing department as well.

It was an order that took several days to fulfill due to how long the process takes. They have also been involved in making over 1,500 ear savers for the masks for first responders.

These students saw a need in the community and decided to give back. They used their skills and talents they acquired through their courses as well as Patriot Engineering to develop and produce PPE.
