Introducing Patrick Cudworth

In conversation with members of the Class of 2014.

Patrick Cudworth

Patrick Cudworth is into sports. Get him talking about his best memories of BCSS and he keeps coming back to sports. From participating in the “whacky track meet” to house team competition in the gym or the soccer team Patrick is, as I said, into sports.

After graduation he plans to get a job and keep working for a year or two while he settles on what he wants to do for a career. But his vision of the next year or two definitely involves working, making money and renting his own place.

Work is something he seems to be accustomed to. When asked to elaborate on his work experience he ran off the names of several places he’s worked and many jobs that he’s done, ending the list with, “roofing and stuff like that.”

He talks about work in a matter-of-fact way—as if there is nothing unusual about it.

From driving a tractor on a farm to lift operator at Phoenix Ski Hill to working at Advance Nursery, Watson Wood Products and Wallace Creek Ranch; and now Greenwood City Foods – Patrick has an impressive resume.

He says he’d like to become a mechanic or heavy-duty equipment operator. He’s been through the fire suppression course. “It was easy and there are some good certificates that can be used later,” he offered— certificates that will help him land work after school, such as WHMIS, Occupational First Aid and Transportation Endorsement.

He lists his strengths as being a good communicator and working well with others.

Then he slid the topic of conversation back to sports, saying he plans to keep up his hockey skills. “Something to do on the weekends,” he called it.
