Supporting comments: "Mature, conscientious and reliable, whether it’s serving as Coordinator of Admissions Tour Guides, president of his fraternity or as founding member and officer of two new honorary societies, Patrick has been motivated by his strong desire to leave his organizations and the campus better than he found them. Patrick is that rare student leader who had no aspirations for the leadership role. But in a remarkable way, leadership defines more who he is rather than a role he inhabits. Some lead by what they do or orchestrate. A few lead by who they are. Patrick embodies fundamental goodness, integrity, respect and affection, making him a leader whom others are drawn to follow."
