Former College, Pro Sports Stars Gather To Celebrate Gym Project On South Coast

Posted on Friday, October 11, 2013 11:45am

It was a who’s who of former star athletes who gathered on the South Coast today, to celebrate a newly refurbished gym at their alma mater.

Former pro basketball players Jamaal Wilkes, Don Ford, Vic Bartolome, and college star Holly Ford Emerson were at Santa Barbara High School today, to celebrate the completion of the renovation of JR Richards Gymnasium.

The gym was built in 1950, and needed everything from a new floor to a new scoreboard.

Bond money paid for part of the work, but the Foundation for Santa Barbara High School raised $300,000 for the million dollar project.
