Early on in her career, Patti recognized the influence she carried as a coach and teacher. Following God’s prompting, she started an FCA Huddle with her daughter and her two friends. The Huddle later grew to see more than 100 students participating in FCA meetings and events. For nearly 30 years, Howard has faithfully served in many roles at FCA: coach, Huddle leader, board member and donor. She has been instrumental in the growth of Southeast Indiana FCA over the last 20 years. She embodies the core
values of FCA, and she has lived out the mission and vision with great enthusiasm.
