He accumulated a 3.95 grade point average, won two varsity letters in tennis and, as a senior, was named to the Northern Region All District Tennis Team. Patrick won awards in several academic areas and was particularly active in Woodson’s Latin Program. He entered the honors program of the University of Michigan with an Air Force ROTC scholarship and completed two years with an all academic record.
