What else can I do? It is a question that athletes sometimes ask themselves when thinking about effort on the
field or pre-season preparation. In business WECID? may be asked in meetings to improve productivity but, to a
select few people it is how they live their lives.
This was how Patrick Jenkins lived his life. The question “What else can I do?” was asked by him daily for the sole
reason to help others. Pat, was a Parkland parent, friend, and youth coach who was taken from us far too soon
after a battle with pancreatic cancer. His unending kindness before and after his diagnosis will always be
remembered by those that knew him.
The WECID? Scholarship will be awarded yearly to a Parkland High School student who most exemplifies both kindness and a commitment to help others. The vision of WECID? is not only to pay tribute to Pat, but hopefully all that hear and see these words will ask themselves, what else can I do? If you can answer that question with just one act of kindness, that in itself will honor Pat and give a lasting gift to his family.
Donations toward the scholarship will be accepted. Shirts will be sold for $12 ($6 to produce/$6 to the fund) and all proceeds will be donated to the scholarship fund. Please see the form below for full details on how you can help.
Always stay up to date with the team’s latest Results, Videos and Roster Information with Hudl!
