You’ve probably seen senior Patrick Corwin leading Shelton’s drumline as the tenor drum section captain, but did you know that he plays 14 instruments, including the saxophone, his favorite? When he’s not in Shelton’s percussion ensemble or honor band, Patrick is in the theater as a member of the orchestra or part of the props crew. He impressed the Shelton crowd when he told his story at Grandparents’ Day. Patrick, who has dyslexia and dysgraphia, started Shelton as a sophomore and says his favorite class is Physics 2 Honors. He’s been accepted to the University of Portland with a $102,000 academic scholarship and to the University of North Texas mechanical engineering program. Patrick hopes to study mechanical engineering with a double major or minor in music. His top three picks for college are NYU, California Polytechnic State University and UNT. “I tell freshmen to really involve yourself,” he says. “You can always do less if it becomes too much, but you want to start off getting involved, meeting new people and really making time for your academics.” Watch the video of Patrick Corwin here.
