Earl Patrick  came to UT Arlington in 1978 as a purchasing agent for the facilities management office, retiring in 2004 after 25 plus years of valued service.  During this 25 year career, Earl was part of many organizational changes including the realignment of the housing office operations in which he was a valued team member.  

In addition to his service here at UT Arlington, Earl has been instrumental in the lives of many individuals with his work with the GED programs of Arlington and assisting with the proctoring of GED classes.  Prior to coming to UT Arlington, Earl was a math teacher in the Robstown ISD from 1971 to 1974.   Earl received his Master in Divinity in 1970 from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Upon retirement in 2004, he joined the UT Arlington Retirees Club and quickly became an active member.  In 2008, he was elected President and served a two-year term through summer 2010.  He and his wife continue to be active in our club and on campus and are proud to be Mavericks.

For these outstanding reasons and to honor his dedication to UT Arlington and the UT Arlington Retirees Club, we are proud to offer Earl Patrick as an inductee to the UT Arlington Retirees Club Roll of Honor.
