Pat has inspired me in countless ways. I could write a book on all the ways this woman has impacted my life. I just want to say that Pat has been an amazing influence in my life. Her work ethic, passion, and perseverance are completely admirable!! She has made such an amazing impact in the RGV because she took the charge of creating a collaborative movement that has changed students’ lives since 1992 when RGV LEAD (formerly known as Tech Prep) was created. Her legacy will live on forever!! I am constantly inspired by her unshakable faith, values, and passion to serve and bring positive change. Pat has changed the landscape for so many students. She has inspired me since the day I met her, and what started as a business relationship, has transpired into a beautiful friendship. Pat, we will all miss you greatly!! However, we want you to know that we will pour our hearts into continue building what you started! You leave an untouchable legacy, and we can only hope that we will build beyond that. We hope you truly enjoy retirement because God knows you deserve it!!!! Love you so very much!!
