Pat, a 1948 PTC graduate, won many awards at PSU, including the inaugural PAT Award, the Madie W. Barrett Award and several alumni awards. Also included in the donation were scrapbooks and gifts from her retirement in 1991 that show many folks from that time at PSU. These artifacts were graciously donated to PSU by her family, after
PSU alums Ann Thurston and Betsy Cheney made arrangements in conjunction with Alumni Relations and the PSU Archives.

“Pat was a steward of Plymouth State students for many years,” Cheney said. “As alumni, it was a privilege for Ann and me, who worked with Pat for so many years, to help provide stewardship for some of her awards, honors and memorabilia. Her love of Plymouth State students, members of the class of 1948, and her friends and colleagues was so obvious as we sorted through these materials.”
