Two pre-engineering students at Fayetteville High School gave a classmate quite the gift.
When students Bradshaw Cate and Jane Ballinger found out that a younger student was having a hard time balancing on his bike because of an arm deformity, they wanted to help.
Cate and Ballinger met with 8-year-old Ben Travis and his mother, who is a teacher at the high school, several times.
They exchanged ideas and finally created a device to hold Ben’s arm up on the bicycle.
“I feel happy and glad that they helped me, and I really enjoy having my new arm and making two new friends,” Travis said.
This is the first time the students have done a project like this and they are thankful for the opportunity to help Ben.
