Kimberly (’02, ’08) and Patrick McGrew (’03, ’07)

Patrick and Kimberly found each other when they needed it most. Kimberly was struggling with her studies and weighing her options for the future when she ran into Patrick at the dumpster between their two apartment complexes. Motivated by the birth of their first child, the two leaned on each other and faced life’s challenges together. With the support of the university and their families, the pair completed both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Texas State. They have three children together.
