Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant will be making an appearance at his alma mater, Lower Merion High School, on December 16 to participate in a ceremony dedicating a new gym named in his honour.

Lower Merion has just completed a new $100 million high school and Kobe donated $411,000 to fund “a series of inspirational, interactive, and educational displays.”

Lower Merion has nearly sold out 1,100 tickets which include $25 general admission seats and $250 VIP seats that also grant access to a reception. 

Kobe led Lower Merion to a state title in 1996, then jumped to the NBA without going to college.
