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.

Witcher graduated from High Point in 1977 and has given a total of $4 million to the university. He’s the founder and current CEO of Smart Choice, a Triad-based company that has grown into a national network of independent insurance agents.
