Kudos to Santa Rosa City Council Member Mark Stapp
Mark Stapp, Santa Rosa District 2 Council Member, has been a volunteer player on visiting basketball teams at San Quentin Prison for over 10 years. Council Member Stapp has been a part of the San Quentin State Prison’s longstanding efforts to employ sports to teach life skills such as teamwork, prosocial behavior, patience, unselfishness and good character.
CEOs, teachers, tech workers, former college players and occasionally former professional players go to the prison for weekly basketball games that have visiting teams play in-house squads. Many of the men have committed serious crimes but have embarked on a rehabilitation program. Many of those who have completed their sentences have found stable jobs and homes and have never returned to prison.
