JIM’S GYM — JAMES “JP” PATTERSON AND THE PATTERSON COMMUNITY GYM AT WEST MARIN SCHOOL

JP retired from Shoreline Unified School District in 2006 and is the founder of the Shoreline Community Mentoring Program, an organization that helps first generation students get admitted and graduate from college., which he is still involved in. “This gymnasium is dedicated to James ‘JP’ Patterson by the Shoreline Unified School District community in appreciation of his constant dedication to the children of the District. In his 36 bears at Shoreline Unified, Jim served as teacher, coach, and principal. His leadership and gentler influence helped shape the local educational programs for children and their families. We all learned from JP.” — Shoreline Board of Trustees, May 2006
