The Patton and Freedom Anchor/Key clubs raised over $900 and 959 pounds of food for the BUCM last night. The REAL winners of this event are the families and individuals impacted by the generosity and kindness of our community. So thank you!!!
Congratulations to the Patton High School Panther Regiment in their victory over Draughn High School at the 31 annual Freedom Classic marching band competition. The Panther Regiment swept Draughn and received awards in color guard, percussion, drum major, music and a superior rating. Patton was 2nd place overall in class 3A falling shortly behind AC Reynolds High School from Asheville North Carolina.
Logan Teaster was part of the County Commissioners meeting this week representing JROTC and Patton in a fine fashion! CONGRATS!!!
