This is a memorial fund for Coach Wilson, the greatest 7th grade social studies teacher to ever grace this planet.

If you went to Corona del Mar High School between the years 1980 and 2000 you were probably familiar with Coach Wilson, the greatest 7th grade social studies teacher to ever walk the earth.  Sadly, Coach Wilson passed away on Sunday, Jan 10, 2010 of diabetes complications. This memorial fund is set up to honor Coach, a man who gave us more detention slips than the rest of the CdM faculty combined but also touched so many of our lives.  The proceeds of the fund will go to the CdM High School Foundation to buy the Coach Wilson Memorial Bench, which will be permently placed in the quad at Corona del Mar High School.  Each donor who gives a tax-deductible donation of $25 or more will have his or name engraved on the bench and the year they graduated along with the nickname that Coach Wilson gave you. Any remaining money will be donated to the American Diabetes Association in Coach's honor to help find a cure for the disease. When you enter your donation, please include your nickname in the comments, and if you'd like, feel free to share a quick story about coach. **************************************************************************************** A "Toast to Pat"  - A tribute to the life of Pat "Coach" Wilson is scheduled for Friday, Jan 22 at 2 PM at the Village Inn (127 Marine) on Balboa Island.
