Along with other members of Troop 442, he participated in a National Public Lands Day project for several years, cleaning trash from the Yadkin River.

A senior at East Rowan High School, Patrick is president of the Tri-M Music Honor Society. He is in the Jazz Band as well as the Mustang Regiment Marching Band, serving as a section leader for one year and co-Drum Major for two years.
