Since the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, Patterson Auto Group sponsors the weekly “Patterson Auto Group MISD Staff Member of the Week” program, in which campus principals and department directors have the opportunity to nominate a teacher or employee from their campus or department on a rotating basis. This nominee is then met on Monday or Tuesday morning with a surprise visit from Patterson representatives, complete with balloons, fanfare, a $50 gift certificate and a free auto detail from Patterson.
MISD has presented Patterson Auto Group with recognition for the "Stand Up For Texas Public Schools" program established by the Texas Association of School Board (TASB) for their participation and sponsorship of the Staff Member of the Week program. “Stand Up For Texas Schools” is a program established by the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) to recognize the generous assistance provided to public school districts by businesses and other community organizations.
Patterson has also been a supporter of MISD’s STEM program, most recently taking part in a joint exercise at Sam Houston Middle School in which students studying hybrid battery technology received an on-site visit from Patterson representatives to show and discuss the technology on actual 2015 Prius Hybrids.
