AKRON, Ohio - An Akron high school gymnasium will sport a new name and new look Saturday, thanks to a $1 million donation from LeBron James.
St. Vincent-St. Mary High School will play its first home boy's basketball games Dec. 14 in the newly renovated gym. The school will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony between the junior varsity and varsity games around 6:45 p.m., dedicating it LeBron James Arena.
The Miami Heat basketball player donated $1 million to his alma mater last year.
The school used the money to renovate the school's gym and locker room. The improvements include new hardwood floors, bleachers, branded scoreboards, lights and sports equipment.
One of the gym's walls also features a 3D look at LeBron's life.
Activities will commemorate the gym's grand opening. They include a live DJ, events between games and booths for young kids.
St. Vincent - St. Mary High School is located at 15 N. Maple St., Akron.
