Braden Baker ’25 took part in Hearing The Call Greater Houston in Sugarland, Texas, on Saturday, May 21. Hearing The Call events give out hearing aids to qualified individuals. Baker directed patients to rooms, made ear molds, and worked the care and use stations. Since June 2017 (when Baker’s dog, Chewy, ate his hearing aids!), Baker has been raising money to provide hearing aids to those who cannot afford them. He chose The Oticon Hearing Foundation (Baker wears Oticon hearing aids) as the recipient of his funds.
In addition, he has local relationships with the Pediatric Audiology Department at Cook Children’s Medical Center and Fort Worth ISD. Baker has traveled the world with Entheos Audiology through their Hearing The Call mission trips as an ambassador for both Oticon and Hearing The Call. Baker will participate in Hearing The Call on June 3 at Mission Arlington with Texas Ranger Pitcher Spencer Patton.
