In the short time I’ve worked at the Advocate I’ve met scores of interesting and amazing people. Off the top of my head, one of the most inspiring of them so far has to be Olympic athlete and LHHS graduate Darvis Patton. You’ll find him on the cover of your August Advocate and I’ll let you in on a little secret —getting those photos was no easy task —Patton is a busy guy. This morning I was reading up on his Olympic schedule when I came across this heartwarming piece in the Star-Telegram about some of his altruistic work as a "big brother". In it, he talks about how LHHS track coach Buzz Andrews was his mentor (a point he also stressed to me during our interview). I’m telling you, this guy just continues to amaze.
