Teicher Patterson, Halifax County Principal of the Year and a member of our NCPTA Board of Directors dies after fighting COVID-19

It is with great sadness that we share with the NCPTA family that we have lost a true hero for children. Teicher Patterson was a cherished member of our Board of Directors. We are devastated. Our prayers to his family, friends, members of the community, but especially the children he never stopped believing in nor fighting for.
