NPR partner Cary Patterson recently donated $1 million to the Texarkana College Foundation, which was the foundation’s largest gift to date. Patterson’s father, a local dentist, was instrumental in Texarkana College starting and growing its robust nursing program into what it is today—a program that has graudated almost 5,000 nurses since its inception. Texarkana College reciprocated Patterson’s generosity by naming the newly acquired health sciences center the William R. Patterson Health Sciences Center, after Patterson’s father, who was Texarkana College’s longest serving trustee and a founding member of the Texarkana College Foundation.
NPR is proud of Cary’s dedication to his community and family and his personal continuation of the firm’s commitment to benefitting the communities it is a part of.
