Lower Merion Names Gym After Kobe

Lower Merion High in Pennsylvania named their gymnasium after Kobe Bryant in a Thursday dedication ceremony.

Bryant donated $411,000 to fund the facility - part of Lower Merion High School's newly completed $100 million campus, which opened this fall.

"He's someone that doesn't like to come back to a lot of fanfare," said school district spokesman Doug Young. "This was a chance for us to honor his contributions."
