St. Vincent-St. Mary to Dedicate Gym to LeBron James

Share on Nextdoor


Akron's famed St. Vincent-St. Mary high school will show off its new look on Saturday at a dedication ceremony for alum LeBron James, who donated $1 million earlier this year for gymnasium renovations.

During the break between the boys junior varsity and varsity games— or at approximately 6:45 p.m.— the school will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly re-vamped gym and locker rooms.

The gym will also officially assume the name LeBron James Arena.

Thanks to LBJ's donation, the school was able to purchase new hardwood floors, lights, and bleachers, as well as branded scoreboards and sports equipment.

One of the gym walls will also feature a 3D look at LeBron's life.
