Work that Matters

As COVID-19 spreads across the country and our state, Montanans are stepping up to battle the virus, including MFPE member Duff Gray. “Tinkerers” in Billings have designed reusable face masks for the battle against coronavirus and Gray, a career and technical education (CTE) educator at West High is overseeing the production of the masks for, which will be used by local area healthcare workers. He’s doing this in addition to teaching full-time.

According to Billings Education Association President Rachel Schillreff, the majority of 3-D printers in the district are currently being used for the production of the reusable face masks and the machines are being manned by MFPE members.

Duff Gray also serves as a building rep for his union and sits on the negotiations team.

    As unfortunate as it is I truly hope we do not send our children back to school too soon I am an essential employee and it is scary knowing I am in and out. Thank you for all you are doing

    Thank you so much as I work at RSNU over in Boulder. MT with our aging inmates and I worry about coming and going to work. I do not want to bring the virus into work and give it to them or my co workers. I am also afraid of bring it home to my love ones so thank you again for making the masks to help keep everybody safe.
