Milford Students Create Prosthetic Arm for Hope

Posted on: March 25, 2016

Hope with Milford HS students who designed her prosthetic arm: Katie Belcher, Hannah Perriman, Connor Hart, Jack Brown, and teacher Peter Leeper

A local girl named Hope is receiving a new mechanical prosthetic arm, thanks to a group of Milford High School students and our partnership with 3M.

Students in the Project Lead the Way program, offered by Great Oaks at Milford High School, developed and built a prosthetic arm for a little girl named Hope. Instructor Peter Leeper knew of Hope's family from his church. A conversation with a business advisory committee member, Don Barnes of 3M, led to a donation of a 3D printer and materials. The printer and materials were used to make the prosthetic arm for Hope.

Hope and her family were at Milford High School on March 24 to meet with the students and have a final fitting.
