Dugan & Associates is a proud sponsor of this unique event and is proud to support a cause that affects more people in our community than many realize.
In most ways, Patrick May is like many other 10th graders. He loves his family dog. He runs cross country. He plays the cello in the school orchestra. He likes video games and even dreams of making them someday. And he's starting to think about college visits--not too hard, mind you, but thinking about them nonetheless.
