Two cheers for Bobby Patton Jr.
He started college in Plan II — my undergraduate program — before getting a degree in finance. Now, a successful energy and real estate investor and part owner of the LA Dodgers, he is donating $20 million to the University of Texas’s College of Liberal Arts. Says Patton:
After I left UT, I realized just how important liberal arts were to my life. They taught me how to learn and how to keep on learning.
Well said. Science journalists know that too, and don’t want liberal arts forsaken in the current focus on STEM.
