Friday, as a district, we mourn and share with deep sadness, the passing of Mr. Teicher Patterson, principal of Enfield Middle STEAM Academy.
As a passionate educator and remarkable man, Mr. Patterson served Halifax County Schools for 28 years.
His range in service included serving as a band teacher, an assistant principal and a principal. He was a mentor to many people.
He loved Enfield Middle STEAM Academy immensely.
In 2020, he was recognized as the Halifax County Schools’ Principal of the Year.
He loved his community and the children he served.
His last activity was participating in the local community parade to highlight the accomplishments of the 2020 graduates.
Let’s reflect on all the wonderful memories we have of Mr. Patterson — they will now become treasures.
Allow his memory and legacy to give us fuel to live on and press forward.
Mr. Patterson was one of our soldiers in the army of righteousness.
He will be missed but his memory will not be forgotten — Eric L. Cunningham, superintendent, Halifax County Schools
