For three generations Patrick Austin’s family has been actively involved in this city we love. His son, Parker, graduated from Seminole High School (SHS) in 2015, and his daughter, Sawyer, will graduate from SHS in 2017.
Mr. Austin is a proud graduate of SHS and a 23-year veteran of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. He has volunteered for three decades at SHS and spent the last 13 years as the Booster Club President. Mentoring young men and women, raising money for the academic, arts and athletic programs, and serving our community are his greatest passions.
Additionally, Mr. Austin has led fund raisers for families in our community who have struggled to pay for medical and funeral expenses, as well as those who have lost everything in fires and storms.
Mr. Austin is a leader and a problem solver. His combined years of service for our community and in law enforcement have given him a broad view of our community.
“By serving the citizens of my hometown, it is my honor and privilege to make Sanford the best it can be.”
