Twitter post earns free T-shirts for elementary student

On Thursday, Oct. 13, a tweet from Kelsey Patterson, wife of TCU Football Head Coach Gary Patterson and secretary and treasurer of The Gary Patterson Foundationshowed local fifth graders at George C. Clarke Elementary School discussing their college plans.

The Gary Patterson Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on supporting under privileged children, providing funding for programs and scholarships that focus on education, life-skills and health and family issues.

When John Veilleux, Texas Wesleyan's vice president of marketing & communications saw the tweet, he decided to surprise the future Ram with a personal visit and TXWES T-shirts.
