Patrick Shifflett was a student at Clarksburg High School when he, along with two friends, died in a car accident in June 2016. Although his family, friends, and the community as a whole immediately felt a tremendous sense of loss, it became clear that Patrick’s impact on those around him was greater than anyone realized. As a standout student athlete and captain of the varsity football team, his motto was “always stay humble”. Over time, we have all learned that those were more than just words to Patrick. No person was too insignificant or unimportant for him to reach out to with help, friendship, and support when needed. Patrick was a leader in every sense of the word, not only athletically, but also in the classroom, in the community, and at home.
