ERIC'S ACCOLADES & ACCOMPLISHMENTS
"Patrick's Project will honor the memory of our beloved son, Patrick Wayne Fagan. Patrick was actively involved in the community through Top Teens of America, Inc., the Houston Police Department Blue Santa Program and the Child Developing Center, Inc., which was the Fagan Family Community Service Project. He enjoyed giving and gave unselfishly of himself to others. The quality of leadership possessed by Patrick earned him a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do after five years of intense training. He enjoyed playing tennis and was a four-year varsity letterman and the recipient of the prestigious Pioneer Award. He was a member of USTA (United States Tennis Association) and played with Femi Thomas Tennis Pro International.
He attended the Imani School, Lutheran South Academy High School and Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA). Among Patrick's many activities while attending SFA, he joined the tennis club, pledged with the Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) Fraternity, played on the Steen East Intramural Basketball Team and participated in the Campus Crusade for Christ Ministry. Our family has partnered with Unlimited Visions Aftercare, Inc., (UVA) to do "Patrick's Project", which is a vision he had to provide tennis lessons for underprivileged and underserved children in the community. It was Patrick's belief that there are many scholarship opportunities for children who play tennis and that those scholarship opportunities could lead to a college education and a way out of poverty for young kids so that they can have better lives. When Patrick's vision was shared with the the CEO of UVA, Marilyn Jones, she said, "That is something that we can make happen to honor his memory." Patrick's Project will provide the youth at UVA's residential facility with fitness, discipline, and teamwork through tennis to aid in long-term recovery.
