Over 500 people attended the Ty Patterson Memorial Scholarship fundraiser in Seguin this past Saturday evening. Game Warden Patterson died in the line of duty almost a year ago when he drowned while trying to recover a flood victim in the Paluxy River. Congressman Henry Cuellar spoke and presented a flag to the Patterson family.
Representative Edmund Kuempel also spoke and handled auctioneering, and Rep. Charlie Geren also attended. The event raised funds for a scholarship program to help young people who reside in the Seguin area pursue law enforcement careers.
Donations can be made by mailing checks made out to TGWA, with a notation that it’s for the Ty Patterson Memorial Scholarship to the Texas Game Warden Association, P.O. Box 1930, Kyle TX 78640.
