James P King Center

Radford High School James King Center

 

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.
