High Point University has received a $2 million gift that will be used to support an athletic center on campus.
The gift comes from Doug Witcher, a High Point University graduate and Board of Trustees member.
According to a news release, the $2 million endowment fund will be used to support ongoing maintenance of the Witcher Athletic Center, which opened and was named in his honor in 2014.
The 36,000-square-foot center is home to High Point’s lacrosse and soccer programs.
