On the evening of December 7, the Patterson School held its annual ceremony to honor the graduates of the school at Spindletop. Some thirty students were honored, including the most recent winner of the John Stempel Award for Best Performance in Comprehensive Exams. Students from the graduating class spoke, as did first year students. Dr. Robert Farley offered the keynote address. Of particular interest, the Patterson School began to say goodbye to Chris Wolcott, who has served in an administrative capacity for over a decade. Many parents and other family members were in attendance as the school ushered another cohort into the professional world.
