The Radford High School Foundation, Inc. spearheaded the drive to construct the James P. King Center on the campus of Radford High School in 1999. Dr. William W. King contributed $100,000 on behalf of the King family to initiate what would become a $1.2 million fund raising campaign by the foundation to complete the center. This facility houses a full size gymnasium used for basketball and volleyball. The center is also equipped with a modern strength and fitness training area, a classroom for teaching, and locker-room facilities. The foundation served as the liaison in a successful partnership between the schools and City of Radford to raise all of the necessary funds and complete construction in 18 months.
